The CCC, in partnership with Rab, Petzl, Scarpa, Joey Henson Art, Nicolas Colquitt Art, Ground Up Collective, and Ground Up Publishing, are proud to introduce the Protectors Program. If you love the fact that the CCC has protected or created public access to areas like Laurel Knob, Buckeye Knob, Hidden Valley, Asheboro Boulders, Big Rock, Buffalo Creek, Eagle Rock, Rumbling Bald, Gerton Ice, Melrose Mountain, Sauratown, then this program is for you. If you love the fact that through the CCC, climbers have a unified voice for access to public and private lands, conservation education, bolt replacement, resource management, and trail work, then this program is for you. For individuals that enroll in the program, know that 100% of your donation will go directly to conservation, stewardship, and acquisitions of climbing resources. We recorded 1600+ hours of on-the-ground volunteer stewardship efforts at climbing areas in NC, SC, and VA in 2018. Your contribution directly supports these efforts.  

Our goal is to find 8 dedicated climbers each year to participate in the program at the $500, $1000, or $1500 levels. There are three levels to choose from, with a limited number of packages per level.  Thanks to our sponsors at Rab, Petzl, Scarpa, Joey Henson Art, Nicolas Colquitt Art, Ground Up Collective, and Ground Up Publishing, each person enrolling in the Protectors Program will receive a variety of benefits related to their level of commitment, based on their one time donation level. Protector participants will also be mentioned in our newsletter and potentially mentioned in future signage, if desired. Please note, a payment plan is possible for Protector participants.
