LCC mini-project, June 13

Thursday, June 4th, 2009


On June 13, 2009, the SLCA will be sponsoring another mini-project in LCC to tackle grafitti removal at the vandalized Beer Can Cave boulder, along with a much needed trail maintenance project on the access trail to the Syringe Boulder and some touch-up work on the Egg Trail. The main goal is to clean up the Beer Can Cave Boulder and any other graffiti around the park and ride, and get some check dams built on the access trail to mitigate the erosion.  We will be meeting at the LCC Park and Ride at 7:00 am and will go probably all day or until the main projects are completed.  We need volunteers!

Email SLCA Projects Manager Jeff Porucznik, <jeff at saltlakeclimbers dt org>  to volunteer.

Rock Canyon crag day, June 6

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

A crag work day will be held on Saturday, June 6, 2009 in Rock Canyon.

Work will be performed on various climber trails and on the landings at the base of some of the heavily-used climbing areas.

Work will commence at 7:00am to beat the heat; another shift will start at 9:00am. However, late-risers are welcome at anytime.

Donations of materials such as landscaping timbers, wire fencing (for gabions), fence posts, etc. would be helpful, so if you have anything, or know of someone who has unused materials they would be willing to donate please contact Jim Knight or Perin Blanchard via
