Great new access news! We have worked with Chimney Rock Village and CR Fire Department to establish a trail easement through Chimney Rock Village land on Round Top Mountain. The Village Boulders Trail is now complete up to the "Grandview Boulder" thanks to the CCC's C4 Team and volunteers.

 Contact mreardon@carolinaclimbers.org if interested in helping build access to new climbing areas like this! The trail is currently 4/10 mile leading to roughly 50+ boulder problems, big views, and even a small seasonal waterfall. Huge thanks to trail leaders Dain Canter, Dan VanBrocklin, Rutherford County TDA,  Cardinal Point Construction, Headwater Environmental, SOAR Academy, French Broad River Academy, Conserving Carolina, Access Fund, and the Village of Chimney Rock for the support out there so far! 

Huge thanks to REI and TRANGO for their continued support of the CCC and our access projects.

This trail building and new access project was funded through the Rutherford County TDA. Thank you #rutherfordbound!
