Laurel Knob is Paid For!

Date: 5/18/2009

After more than three years of fundraising efforts, the Carolina Climbers Coalition (CCC) made the final payment for the acquisition of Laurel Knob in North Carolina. Arguably the tallest cliff in the eastern United States, Laurel Knob boasts stunning water-grooved granite routes up to ten pitches long. During the course of the fundraising efforts, the Access Fund awarded the group three separate grants totaling $25,000 to help pay off the acquisition of this 50-acre tract of cliff line. We are proud of all the work that the CCC and their supporters have done to put this treasure in the hands of climbers.
