Join the Bay Area Climbers Coalition, the Cal Hiking and Outdoor Society (CHAOS), and Cal Climbing for the first annual Berkeley Triple! On Saturday, November 8, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, the groups will be participating in an Adopt-A-Crag at Indian Rock, Mortar Rock and Cragmont in Berkeley.
These three organizations will be joining forces to take on the cleaning of three (yes three) of the Berkeley Rock Parks in one day – Indian Rock, Mortar Rock, and Cragmont Park – and you are invited to join us!
Sign up for the event at Event Brite
It is extremely important that the climbing community support our outdoor climbing areas – the maintenance and conservation of these areas is our responsibility. These types of stewardship events go a long way in maintaining relationships with land managers and ensure our continued access.
Please be sure to sign-up for which “team” you want to join: Indian/Mortar – Volunteer – No Experience Required – we will train you
Cragmont – Volunteer – No Experience Required – we will train you
Cragmont – Trail Building – Experienced Trail Builders Only
Volunteers are needed to help with the following projects at the three sites:
Glass and Trash Clean-Up
Clearing of Pathways Around Park
Trail Maintenance and Building – Experience Required for Cragmont
General Park Beautification and Landscaping Work
Where are these Rock Parks?
Indian/Mortar Rock = Mountain Project website provides a great overview and directions.
Cragmont Park = Mountain Project website provides a great overview and directions.
Safety – We are HUGE on safety! There will be a safety talk at 10am 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.
Parking – These crags are nestled within the neighborhoods of the Berkeley Hills – so while the parking is free, it is limited. Our suggestion would be to try and carpool. If this is not possible, please be patient and know that you might need to park a block or two away – the walk over will be a great warm-up.
Food – Lunch has been graciously sponsored by BUILD Pizzeria in Downtown Berkeley. Their pizza is amazing and we encourage all of you to check them out and support the business that support our community.
Water – There are drinking fountains available at Indian Rock and Cragmont Park – please be sure to bring a water bottle.
Tools – we will be getting tools and gloves from the City of Berkeley Parks department, you are also welcome to bring your own lucky shovel, push broom, or gloves.
