Upcoming: Mt. Saint Helena Adopt-A-Crag, May 5, 2018

Join the Bay Area Climbers Coalition in partnership with Rock Ice & Mountain (RIM) Club and California State Parks to take on some cleaning and maintenance projects around Mount Saint Helena at Robert Louis Stevenson State Park on Saturday, May 5, 2018.

Mount Saint Helena at Robert Louis Stevenson State Park is one of the premier sport climbing crags in the Bay Area. With tons of routes and a wide range of difficulty, it has something for everyone and attracts climbers from all over the Bay Area.

Last year, Mount Saint Helena and the surrounding areas were hit hard by the 2017 Napa Fires. The North Bay climbing community has done an awesome job of restoring the hardest hit crags, but there’s still a lot of work to do. The entire area needs extra love, attention, and care from local climbers.

Volunteers will be working on the following projects:
– Glass and trash clean-up
– Clearing of debris from trails
– Trail maintenance

We look forward to working with our friends at the RIM Club, who have been long-time stewards at this crag!

Date: Saturday, May 5, 2018
Time: 9:00 A.M. – 1:00 P.M. Clean-up will conclude around 1pm to allow time for afternoon climbing together!

How To Join: Sign up on Eventbrite! Space is limited, reserve your spot today!

Logistics

Meeting Point – Meet at the Mount Saint Helena Trail Head, right off of Highway 29. Be careful with the approach because some drivers take that road pretty fast. Due to limited parking, carpooling is highly recommended.
Safety – We are HUGE on safety! There will be a safety talk at 9am on the day of the event. Please note that we require all participants to be present for the safety talk and wear closed toe shoes. Unfortunately, we cannot allow anyone to participate that does not wear closed toe shoes and/or attend the safety talk.
Food – Lunch will be provided for all volunteers. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions.
Water –Please bring your own water bottle with at least 1 liter of water! We will be able to provide some refills, but due to the nature of the event, it might be difficult for everyone to access refills.
Tools – Tools and gloves will be provided, but bring your own work gloves if you prefer.
Bathrooms – There are no bathrooms at or near the park. Please go before you go!
Clothing – Sturdy, closed toe shoes are mandatory.We ask that you wear closed-toe shoes, a long sleeve shirt, and pants, as poison oak does exist in some areas. Bring your own climbing gear for any post-event crushing!
