CCC Starts Off the New Year by Closing on Rumbling Bald

Date: 1/7/2010

Carolina Climbers Coalition (CCC) starts off the new year by closing on the acquisition of Rumbling Bald West Side Boulders on January 6. The Access Fund provided a bridge loan of $72,000 from the new Access Fund Land Conservation Campaign to finance 90% of the purchase price for the 6.12 acre tract, which hosts 30 boulders with approximately 200 high quality boulder problems.

The CCC and the Access Fund worked together to finalize the purchase of this popular bouldering area from a private developer. The CCC will fundraise over the next two years, with the intent of transferring the property to North Carolina State Parks for long-term, climber-friendly management.
