I can understand their budget concerns but MAN would that suck for those on us who rely on climbing in NC State Parks to get us thru the winter months. If you care, speak up!


In reply to:
Due to budget concerns, North Carolina is considering an annual closure of all state parks between December and February. Based on a recent legislative committee report, the move is estimated to save $2.4 million dollars annually.

Climbing areas affected by the closure would include: Rumbling Bald, Stone Mountain, Pilot Mountain, Crowder’s Mountain, Dixon School Road boulders, Cook’s Wall, Moore’s Wall, and Two Mile. In addition to climbing, North Carolina state parks provide a wide range of recreational opportunities such as running, hiking, cycling, camping, boating, and horseback riding.

Okay, I gotta say that I don't find the AF Action site page useful.
