I spent the weekend running our 4th annual Birdsboro clean and climb.


Drinking+climbing at your lead limit by moonlight=bashed head and lots of blood

The Climb and Clean was awesome; we accomplished all of our very major infrastructure projects. Although we were not successful removing years of caked up chalk on the classic climbs.

We raised enough funds to run our operation next year and formalize our community into a non profit organization. We hope to start a climbing academy for "at risk" youth. This has been a long term dream for me and I am hoping that this will be the first step torwards that goal.

We did have 1 incident (see above)...a group of climbers decided to climb (after liberal availability of beer) up a climb that was at their lead limit. The leader apparently missed a bolt at the crux, flipped over and hit her unhelmeted head on the rocks below. Lots of blood (I have a photo of the blood stained rock) but she managed to survive the night and walk out in the AM. Kind of scary!
