This year Fox Mountain Guides is expanding the classic Looking Glass Rock ‘Adopt-A-Crag’ trail day into a weekend long event for climbers from across the Southeast region to get together and to raise funds and awareness for the Access Fund, Carolina Climbers Coalition and Southeastern Climbers CoalitionMisty Mountain will also be showing up to support fundraising efforts by selling lots of goods at serious discounts (Thanks to Misty for their continued generous support). Also from the CCC site:
The event will have three main components, Saturday 9am-1pm is the Access Fund Adopt A Crag trail day at Looking Glass Rock, with time to climb through the afternoon at the Glass. Saturday evening will be the Carolina Climbers Coalition Event of a catered BBQ, slide show and multimedia presentations from local climbers with a huge silent auction and fundraiser for the CCC. On Sunday Fox Mountain Guides and Climbing School will be offering two Climbers Self Rescue courses with 100% of the proceeds going to the Southeastern Climbers Coalition.
Are you going to the Western NC Climbers Weekend at Looking Glass? The Hound Ears comp? Do you want to score a killer deal on some Misty Mountain goods? Well, you're in luck. The fine folks at Misty will be having a gear sale at both events with all proceeds going to the CCC. There will be piles of stuff at different price ranges - sales samples, overruns, all great stuff that can't be sold at retail. Cash only, so stuff a few bills in your pocket and trade them in on some new gear. Many thanks to Misty Mountain Threadworks, who continue to find new ways to support climbing in the Carolinas!Sounds like a good chance to have fun, enjoy the fall temps, and help support the crags and the folks that look out for em. More info can be seen at the Access Fund calendar.
