The Southeastern Climbers Coalition has spent the last 19 years dedicating volunteers’ time and resources to preserving climbing access in the Southeast. Their mission is to preserve climbing areas for present and future generations. As the SCC approaches its 20th year anniversary in 2013, the SCC board members and delegates foresee a bright future for the organization. “The SCC has grown and thrived as a grassroots organization. We have succeeded because of the passion and drive our volunteers bring to preserving climbing areas. By hiring two part-time employees, we hope to only further our mission by increasing membership and pursuing more access issues than ever,” says Matthew Gant, current SCC President.
