On Thursday, May 26th, North Carolina Governor Easley signed Bill 586 authorizing Hickory Nut Gorge State Park, which includes Rumbling Bald.

This is great news for climbers. While it will be a multi-year process, with much work left to do, such as fund raising etc., the climbing community is one step closer to protecting a place that is near and dear to our hearts. Thank you to everyone who has donated time or money and thanks to all of you who took the time to call and write your legislators. You made the difference.

This is great news, however, the push is not over. Stay tuned to www.carolinaclimbers.org/ for more information in the coming months.

If you have fundraising opportunities/ideas to share, please email Brandon Calloway at bcalloway@carolinaclimbers.org.
