The details for the Penn State Outing Club meeting are Tuesday September 13th at 8pm in 140 Fenske Lab on the Penn State campus.
Please attend the meeting and learn what you can do to assist another nonprofit with their efforts to protect climbing areas. While C3PA was founded on a very local level, many of us enjoy climbing in Southern Utah and throughout the west. We must give equal attention to our national climbing areas as we do local.]]>
Which brings me to serious, heartfelt and tremendously thankful portion of this blog post. As climbers, as C3PA’ers, as folks who just like to be able to romp around in beautiful rocky areas, we are deeply grateful to Jud and Anne Millar for their generosity, vision, and uncommon commitment to the local climbing community. Jud and Anne have been incredibly enthusiastic and proactive about forging a positive relationship with local climbers. They have gone to great lengths to set the stage for a respectful, warm, collaborative relationship with the climbing community, and we owe them our heartfelt thanks and utmost respect for the land that they’ve been so willing to grant us the privilege of sharing.20e7 ]]>
After May 1st, however, climbing season at Donation begins! PLEASE remember to fill out the online waiver before heading to the rocks.
And finally, a big, very belated thank you to all the climbers that showed up and worked hard during the Donation Rocks Adopt-A-Crag event! To call the event a huge success is a big understatement. Look for a proper post soon that gives the event, the attending climbers, and most of all Donation Rocks landowners, the credit they deserve.]]>
A link to the secure form will be emailed to you to verify your identity, and you can then sign the form online. After you’ve completed it, you’ll receive a copy that you can print out and put in your climbing pack.
Properly protecting the landowners from liability is a key aspect of opening this climbing area to the public. Please sign your waivers, carry them on you, and help to ensure that others have done the same.
Here are the event details:

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!1f32 ]]>

The Penn State Outing Club is bringing the new climbing movie, CORE, to Penn State on April 20th. Come on out to see a great video and mix it up with the Penn State and State College climbing crowd. Please see details below!
From the director of PURE…
CORE goes to the heart of climbing. Join an international cast of the sport’s most dedicated athletes as they stick it when it matters most. Shot in 35mm Ultra High Definition, get ready to see every detail of some of the nastiest pieces of rock ever climbed.
A close examination of each character offers perspective beyond just their achievements on the stone. From Helsinki to Hueco, Africa to Italy, the enclosed forests of Tuscany to the vast open space of the American West, this film is a study in the landscapes and lifestyles that define our sport.
Be there, in the moment, as a 5.14 traditional route gets its first ascent. See the mind-bending footage from Livin Large, Nalle Hukkataival’s monster 8C. Watch as Fred Nicole polishes off his multi-year project in Switzerland ñ his hardest ever. All these achievements and more are brought to you here in Chuck Fryberger’s followup to the hit bouldering flick PURE. These are the moments and the athletes that define our sport, documented here with a unique style that invites the viewer to be part of the experience.
Sarah and Steph Marvez
And Many More.
On Location in:
Hueco Tanks, USA
Rocklands, South Africa
A FULL HD SHOWING WILL BE ON APRIL 20th at 9PM, IN THE HUB AUDITORIUM (PSU CAMPUS)

We’re thinking of having another informal get together at Hunters’ on Sunday April the 11th at 2:30pm. We will be performing trail and area cleanup and climbing in the legal portions of Hunters Rocks. If time permits, we may also travel over to the Powercut climbing area nearby. If you are not familiar with the climbing areas, we will happily show you which boulders are best for climbing. If you wish to meet other climbers from the area, this is a perfect venue. Even if you do not climb but wish to help clean up an area, this event is appropriate for you.
You should bring rock climbing shoes, a chalk bag, and a crashpad if you intend on climbing. Dress appropriately for the weather. Even if the weather is not suitable for climbing, we will still work on cleaning up the area. If you have it you can bring shovels and gardening rakes for cleaning up the trail, work gloves, and garbage bags.
Meet at the group campsite off of Frew Road across from the new trail to Hunters Rocks. For those not familiar and needing further directions, email email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or reference the link in the post below.]]>
