Donation Rocks Soon Open to the Public!

Posted by Ieva Perkons on April 5th, 2011

Well, folks, we have some fantastic news to report. Stone Mountain Adventures has purchased the land containing a portion of Donation Rocks (all of the rocks on the right side of the road as you’re approaching from Route 26) and will soon be opening the land to the general climbing public!

Stone Mountain Adventures (SMA) has been exceedingly generous and tirelessly enthusiastic about re-opening this area to climbers. C3PA, along with the Access Fund, has been working with SMA to help mitigate the legal risks incurred by opening up private land to public climbing activity. SMA will be asking all climbers to fill out a free, online waiver prior to showing up at the rocks, and to carry a copy of the signed waivers with them while climbing on SMA property. Climbing will officially be open to the public once this waiver system is in place.

In the meantime, please continue to comply with the climbing closure until SMA has a chance to put up the necessary signage and finish building their online waiver system. We’ll let you know as soon as the area is officially reopened!

Can’t let another weekend pass by without squeezing some Donation sandstone? Come out, meet the new owners, help out with some trail building and maintenance, and then celebrate by roping up and pulling down. Donation’s first ever Adopt-A-Crag event will take place this Sunday, April 10th. Details to follow very shortly!
