ADOPT A CRAG
« on: July 28, 2003, 06:48:06 PM »
The Access Fund's annual Adopt-a-Crag event is coming up in
september. If you are familiar with the local climbing areas, and know of a crag that is in need of some work (cleanup, trailwork, whatever) please let me know asap.

thanks

I would say that Humphrey's is a very popular place that desperately needs some trail work.

I should have been more specific.  I am looking for crags in the metropolitan Boston area.

Judging from Rte 16 on Friday nights and Sunday evenings, I'd say you are right.  Perhaps they should extend the T a little farther north?

Den Rock could use a little trash removal.  Pawtuckaway could use it too.  And what's up with all the Massachussetts folk driving up Rt 16 and craching their cars so we have to wait an hour for their mess to be cleaned up.  If you can't drive, stay in Boston where you won't hurt someone and piss off thousands of motorists.   ::)

Al,
There's nothing preventing anyone from getting something going at Humphrey's. Pretty much all you gotta do is organize it and do it. If you want it acknowledged you can register your event on the Access Fund's site.

But if all the Boston drivers didn't drive to N. Conway how would they get to the outlets?  Seriously, Any of the above mentioned areas could use some work.  Here in VT we had an adopt a crag day at bolton about a month ago and the results were impressive.  I'd say the key to the event (besides all that organization crap) was either Ben and Jerry's or the raffle.  So, if you are planning any adopt a crag events, make sure to get free food.  Climbers come out of the woodwork for free food.

well, it's not a primo climbing destination,  and it's not as big as the quarry, but waitts mountain in malden is literally covered with broken glass. it's even on the handholds of the routes. some of the t.r. anchor bolts are good and some are kind of questionable. it's not as cool of a place to have the adopt a crag event as quincy quarry, but it definitely could use it. i'm not sure but i  think the city of malden must own the land, right?
