Yellow Bluff Officially Opens!

For climbers in the Southeast, April 18 started like any other Saturday––with one big difference. This particular Saturday marked the re-opening of the historic Yellow Bluff cliff line. Approximately 35 volunteers celebrated the crag’s re-opening and stuck around to help build a trail, place anchors, put up a couple of new routes, and, of course, climb.

Climbers’ children cut the opening ribbon, creating a surreal moment for the crowd. The purchase of this cliff means that future generations will have the opportunity to climb at Yellow Bluff.

The Access Fund is proud of the Southeastern Climbers Coalition and all of their supporters for this landmark acquisition. For more information, visit Southeastern Climbers Coalition website
