Indian Rock Clean-Up
On Friday, October 14th the Access Fund is having an Adopt-A-Crag cleanup from 10am to sunset at Berkeley's Indian Rock. Mountain Hardwear employees as well as other Bay area climber's will be heading out to the local park to brush holds, clean up trash and make sure that the local climbing area remains pristine.
According to the Access Fund, Adopt-A-Crag events like the one at Indian Rock exist to unite local climbing communities in partnerships with land managers to conserve local climbing areas. Adopt-a-Crag events typically include activities such as litter clean-ups, trail construction and restoration, erosion control, and invasive weed removal.
These events epitomize climber conservation at the local level, showing landowners and land managers that climbers truly care about the places they recreate. This display of stewardship not only gives back to the land, but is paramount to keeping climbing areas open by showing decision makers the passion that climbers have for their climbing areas.
Sam Kobata, a Mountain Hardwear employee, has been working hard at maintaining local crags. A few months ago, Kobata participated in a clean-up at Mount St. Helena. Kobata will be working there on Friday. If you have any questions, need directions or wondering what you should bring to help out contact him at Sam Kobata- firstname.lastname@example.org.
