Central Appalachia Climbers Coalition

Central Appalachia Climbers Coalition logo


The Central Appalachia Climbers Coalition (CACC) was established to develop, maintain, and promote rock climbing in central Appalachia. The climbing in our region is just starting to develop, but the potential is vast. We believe that rock climbing will be a viable component of the economic and cultural transition that central Appalachia needs. We want to bring this sustainable economy to our region, where natural resources have always been our greatest asset. Rock climbing is an amazing sport with physical, mental and social benefits. That's why the CACC is working hard to make climbing more accessible in the wonderful communities of central Appalachia. Rock climbing creates such a powerful connection that once you climb in these mountains, you may never want to leave them...

You can support the CACC by giving donations of time or money and sharing our organization with others. As a new non-profit, cash donations are currently needed for startup and maintenance costs, such as insurance, event display items (table, tent, etc.), website hosting fees, climbing area signage, and taxes on the newly acquired AVP Boulders. More money will be needed in to the future for re-bolting efforts, buying new crags and boulders and associating maintenance costs, and making rock climbing more accessible in central Appalachia. For notification about volunteer opportunities at one of our stewardship events, subscribe to our mailing list and follow us on social media.
