Article: The Volunteers
On the west coast, California in particular, more Access Fund sponsored work:

In spite of a threatening forecast nine volunteers showed up for what is believed to be a first adopt-a-crag day at Tahquitz Rock, where the volunteers and a forest ranger, Andy Smith, did trail maintenance. The hard working group made the trail a little easier going and much more obvious to both those going up and down with the hope that climbers will stick to this route and avoid the other routes. Andy will put in a small 4 X 4 post on the Ernie Maxwell trail to mark the start of the climbers' trail. We had a great group and got the work done much more quickly than Andy expected and I wish to thank all of them. It was a first time at an adopt-a-crag event for most of the group, but they were enthusiastic about the work and ready to help again, when their backs recover.

Climbers, please stick to this trail in accessing the climbs on northwest, west, and south sides of Tahquitz so that erosion damage can be minimized. And encourage your friends to do likewise.
