The Southeastern Climbers Coalition Hosts "Dont Take It for Granite¨ Party and Fundraiser 2. On Thursday, July 24th, the Southeastern Climbers Coalition (SCC) www.seclimbers.org will host its second annual fundraiser at Club eleven50 in Midtown, Atlanta. Monies raised at the event will be used to help pay the mortgage on the 7.8 acre Boat Rock Preserve. The SCC will host not one, but two, famous climbers as guest speakers. Rick Sylvester has put up several big wall lines in Yosemite and served as the stuntman for 007 in James Bond movies. Brad Johnson is an alpinist who has climbed in the Himalayas (including an attempt at K2). Brad will present a slide show on the spectacular Cordillera Blanca in Peru and will be signing his new book. Last years fundraiser raised more than $9000 for Boat Rock and organizers hope this year's event will be even more successful.
