  2005 Goals

The SCC will continue our support of trail days and cleanups at all of our crags throughout the southeast (Sand Rock, Twall, Boat Rock, Griffin Falls, Obed, Sunset Rock, Tallulah Gorge, Kings Bluff, High Point, Currahee, etc.).

Continue support of Kings Bluff climbing area that recently donated to the SCC. This climbing cliff is located on the Tennessee River near Clarksville, Tennessee and represents a landmark for the SCC as we now own and manage two climbing areas. The SCC is currently raising funds for the repair and replacement of fixed anchors at the crag and will support trail days and cleanups at that area.

Continue work towards opening access to the Jamestown climbing area in northeast Alabama.

Continue talks with landowner at Castle Rock, Tennessee to discuss a possible purchase of the area to reopen the area to climbing.

Continue talks with the owners of Steele and Yellow Creek (Alabama) to discuss possible solutions to open these crags.

Continue development of minimal impact environmental education information (recently worked on Rocktown and general info flier) for crags throughout the southeast.

Continues support of the Chattanooga Climbers Association (CCA).

Continue support of the Triple Crown bouldering competition and support of access gained to the Little Rock City climbing area on Monte Lake Golf Course property through coordination with the landowner and development of a day-use permit system by the SCC.
