In time for the beginning of the ice climbing season, Northeastern Vermont Climber's Alliance has stocked the rescue cache near the south end of the ice routes on Mt. Pisgah. A second cache has been constructed, and will be installed in the Last Gentleman Ampitheater on December 16. Each cache contains a rescue backboard/sled and basic first aid supplies.

Funding for the project was provided by generous donations to an online fundraiser organized by Access Fund Regional Coordinator Richard Doucette; NEVCA volunteers built and installed the shelters, and will maintain them.

NEVCA would like to extend our thanks to everyone involved in the project, and wish a safe and happy ice climbing season to all!
