Over the past several years the Southeastern Climbers Coalition has a great history of helping preserve and maintain access at areas throughout the southeast. One of the tools they’ve been using of late is to buy the land climbing areas reside on outright which is obviously an expensive proposition. With that in mind the SCC entered a contest to win a $250,000 grant from Pespsi. If they win the SCC plans to put the money towards buying 2 undisclosed areas in the southeast that are currently closed to climbing.
So, how can you help? It’s quite easy. You can vote for the SCC twice per day, once at this website and once by texting 104071 to 73774. Voting ends on November 30.
Even if you’re never going to visit the southeast this is an easy for you to help out fellow climbers! Here’s a little promotional video the SCC put together for this project if you need a little more motivation:
