Western Colorado Climbers Coalition, CO

By Eve Tallman

The Western Colorado Climbers Coalition, based in Grand Junction, has had a fortuitous month. The group has established 501(c)3 status and received notification about a $5,000 grant from REI for projects relating to the immediate needs of Unaweep Canyon access. This puts the coalition on track to continue efforts to find a climber-friendly buyer for Lower Mothers Buttress and the Television Wall.

The Coalition's website is www.westernslopeclimbers.blogspot.com . If you that haven't yet had a chance to climb in Unaweep and want to see what the fuss is about, check out www.mountainproject.com.
