I would like to wish the best of luck for all of your 2015 climbing objectives. Once again, I hope this new year brings a new level of most excellent climbing stoke to everyone.

Here is a look back at our club accomplishments in 2014:

    Received notification of an award for the AAC Cornerstone Conservation Grant

  • November/December: Holiday Break
  • Three new routes were put up at cliff drive by a very hard working member of our community: Dakota Waltz. In addition to Cliff Drive crag cleanups and routine maintenance in 2015, we will be resolving an erosion issue at the base of the main climbing area at Cliff Drive. The KCCC will be presented funds from the Cornerstone Conservation grant sponsored by REI and the AAC in 2015. We can’t wait to kick off this project.

Again, I'm extremely thankful to be a part of the great leadership team that we have for the club in 2015! If you have any good ideas, please email them to the kcclimbingclub@gmail.com or Facebook one of the leaders (Carol, Ryan, Carl, or myself).
