Queer Crush and the Bay Area Climbers Coalition are proud to announce the third Vacaville Woodcrest Boulders Adopt-A-Crag, Saturday, April 4th!
Join Queer Crush, a Touchstone Climbing meetup committed to creating a safe space for LGBTQ+ climbers, and the Bay Area Climbers Coalition for an amazing day of stewardship and camaraderie! The Woodcrest Boulders are a wonderful cluster of boulders in the Browns Valley Open Space Preserve. Unfortunately, many have been the targets of graffiti over the years and we are going to do our best to get these boulders looking good. Together, we’ll tackle the graffiti on these awesome boulder problems!
We ask that you bring a water bottle and wear closed-toe shoes, a long sleeve shirt, and pants. The graffiti cleanup will involve using environmentally safe chemicals and potentially carrying heavy objects over rough terrain. Please consider carpooling. We encourage you to chat with other volunteers and coordinate rides within the Facebook event. Gloves, tools and lunch will be provided. The graffiti removal involves a little water, so a small towel may come in handy. Our work will conclude around 12 pm.
Bring your climbing gear for any post-event crushing! Climbing is not an official part of this event, but you are welcome to go on your own afterwards.
On 04/04 we’ll meet over by the Woodcrest Boulders. The trailhead is located on Woodcrest Drive, approximately 150’ south of Wrentham Drive. Keep an eye out for the Bay Area Climbers Coalition sign!
We are HUGE on safety! There will be a safety talk at 9am on the day of the event. We require all participants to be present for the safety talk and wear closed toe shoes to participate. The graffiti cleanup will involve using environmentally safe chemicals and potentially carrying heavy objects over rough terrain – please come appropriately attired.
Coffee, lunch, and snacks will be provided for all volunteers. Please let us know if you have dietary restrictions.
Please bring your own water bottle with at least 1 liter of water! We will be able to provide some additional water, but cannot promise refills for everyone.
We will be providing tools and gloves, but you’re welcome to bring your own work gloves if you prefer.
We plan on renting a Porta-potty for the site.
Sturdy, closed toe shoes are mandatory. Work gloves, long sleeve shirts, long pants, a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen are all highly recommended. Be prepared to get some sun. It may be very hot, too!
Queer Crush and Touchstone Climbing, the BACC, and The City of Vacaville look forward to seeing you at the cleanup. Space is limited, so register today!
