Rock/Creek Outfitters, Chaco, and Five Ten Partner with the Southeastern Climbing Coalition to Improve a Premier Southeastern Bouldering Field
Climbers to show appreciation for continued access to locally prized bouldering field by participating in another Trail Day at Little Rock City in Soddy Daisy, Tennessee on Saturday, April 22, 2006
Chattanooga, TN – Rock/Creek Outfitters, the brick-and-mortar shop behind all the great products on RockCreek.com and ClimbingGear.com, is sponsoring a trail day along with the SCC, Chaco and Five Ten, up at one of our favorite crags, Little Rock City. This incredible boulder field is owned by a Golf Club and the owners graciously allow us to climb on their private property in a region that is riddled with access issues. As a way of giving back, and in an effort to ensure future access, we have periodic trail days at LRC.
Our next event is planned for April 22, 2006, at 9AM, and will last about 5 hours.
Location: Mont Lake Golf Course, Soddy-Daisy TN
On tap will be two activities for the Montlake Golf Club:
1) Parking lot landscaping (plant a few trees in the parking medians and putting in new mulch), and
2) Staining the Clubhouse deck. We’ll also do some actual trail work too–there are (again) a couple of trees down over the trails and some trash to clean-up.
We are also planning to have some hotdogs, hamburgers and cokes for participants. We’re not sure yet if the SCC will be covering this or if Montlake will be “cooking.”
“I spoke with the landowner’s wife a few weeks ago–she was very thankful for the climbing community and the work that we have done in the boulderfield and on the golf course. She, her husband and the community at Montlake have been very good to us, and I passed that fact and thanks on to her–just wanted to share that with you all. Thanks for all that you have done and continue to do for LRC and the community of Montlake.” says Chad Wykle.
