As many of you know, we've been working on building a new climbing stewardship organization in the North Conway area called Friends of the Ledges.
This spring we are planning our second annual spring clean-up at Cathedral and Whitehorse ledges, see info below. Please join us! We're focusing on trail work and cleaning up any litter from the winter — as we found last year, this early-season work day is a nice complement to the annual Mountain Rescue Service cliff clean-up that takes place toward the end of the season.
For more information about Friends of the Ledges, right now most info is being posted on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/nhledges/
. We're working on updating our website and our email sign-up list — coming soon. If you have questions, comments, ideas, etc., feel free to email me directly: email@example.com
Best wishes from a snowy spring day in North Conway,
FRIENDS OF THE LEDGES SPRING CLIFF CLEAN-UP
SUNDAY, MAY 15
Meet at the kiosk at Cathedral Ledge
It's that time of year where our beloved cliffs need a little TLC. All are welcome, and please invite others. A casual BYO-everything cook-out (drink, chips, food for the grill) will follow in the early evening at the kiosk area at the base of Cathedral (or head to Flatbread for plan B rainy day scenerio). Should be great afternoon!
Clean Up Objectives are (and they are subject to change):
- Second coat of paint on the blazes for the approach trails.
- Take down the signs marking the approach trails and paint.
- Replace missing approach signs (if supplied by State Park).
- Spruce up the kiosk with a fresh coat of paint.
- Leaf blow/raking of trails where needed.
- Picking up any trash from winter.
- If someone was ambitious, we could reblaze the Bryce path.
Please wear proper work attire and work gloves of your choice.
Friends Of The Ledges is a climbing stewardship organization in the eastern White Mountains of New Hampshire and Maine.
