Eldred Campsite Given Designated Recreation Site Status & Adopt-A-Crag

CASBC has just concluded another agreement with the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations to designate the Eldred Valley campsite as a Designated Recreation Site. Need a reminder on what that means?http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/facts/prk_desig.html#Recreationarea As we said in our Annual Report, these types of agreements are a good step in protecting our climbing areas and we will endeavour to find more prospective sites.

Eldred Adopt-a-Crag

Will be held May 4th to 6th. We are going to change things up this year and have the work parties out on Saturday. After all your much appreciated hard work there will be a Salmon bake pot luck dinner and prizes. Sunday is climbing day!! Bring your wire brushes!!

written by Peter Winter

Timberlands is proposing logging in and around the Stillwater Bluffs climbing area. While it seems access to the bluffs will be maintained, you can add your voice to prevent the logging.

for Eldred

written by Colin Dionne

The seventh annual Eldred adopt-a-crag was held on the May long weekend. Again a fun and successful event. 23 volunteers showed up and repaired a section of the psyche slab trail damaged by rockfall. Work was also done on the B-branch bouldering trail. Everyone also enjoyed excellent climbing weather. Special thanks to Cascade Designs for providing draw prizes for the volunteers. Thanks also go out to Kiewitt and Sons for making an ongoing effort to accommodate the climber traffic.
