Carolina Climbers Coalition Makes Final Payment on Rumbling Bald!

Date: 11/15/2011

The Carolina Climbers Coalition (CCC) made their final payment last week on their Access Fund Land Conservation Campaign (AFLCC) loan, completing their purchase of the Rumbling Bald West Side Boulders in North Carolina. The six acres of climber-owned boulders are centrally located to Asheville, Charlotte, and Greenville, SC and contain approximately 200 high quality boulder problems. The area sees considerable use from southeast climbers. The CCC and the Access Fund worked together to purchase this popular bouldering area from a private developer in 2009. The CCC is the third organization to fully pay back their AFLCC loan, returning funds to the revolving loan program where the Access Fund will loan the money out again to save another threatened climbing area.

Way to go CCC!
