Help Keep NC State Parks Open

Posted: February 24, 2012 in Access, climbing, Conservation

Rumbling Bald

North Carolina State Parks are threatened by possible winter season closure due to budget constraints. Since Winter is the prime season for rock climbing throughout much of the southeast, climbing areas and climbers will be heavily impacted. The specific climbing areas affected by the closure would include: Rumbling Bald, Stone Mountain, Pilot Mountain, Crowder’s Mountain, Dixon School Road boulders, Cook’s Wall, Moore’s Wall, and Two Mile.

The potential closure is in the early stages of the legislative process and now is the best time to voice concern. If North Carolina’s State Parks are important to you—especially those that contain climbing areas—then write your state representatives and urge them to keep them open year round!

We need your help: please take a moment to voice your concerns using The Access Fund’s easy-to-use letter writing tool. You can simply send the letter that the Access Fund and Carolina Climbers Coalition have drafted, or take a few minutes to personalize your own letter.


Special Thanks to The Access fund and Carolina Climbers Coalition for bringing this vital issue to our attention.
