What I think the valley really needs is an organized climbing group that could be stewards to these trails and cliffs.
Of course talk is cheap!
agreed on both parts. too bad the MRS won't get involved...
I don’t really think trail maintenance/building falls under the MRS mission. AMC, AAC, and Access Fund (all of which I support through membership), would be better organizations for supporting this type project. AMC is probably out despite having some of the best trail building crews, as this is not a recognized trail.
Access Fund has had major trail building/signing projects out west, but I’ve never seen the organization to active in this area.
The AAC has shown a stronger presence recently organizing local “Craggin’ Classics” and BBQ’s, so I’ld suggest interested persons join this non-profit and attend some events. They’re always fun and there are plenty of influential well intentioned folks in attendance.
Grass-roots is good too, but in my experience often fizzles out without a finished product.
