Mission Statement

The SCC's mission is to preserve climbing areas for future generations to enjoy.

Description

The Southeastern Climbers Coalition is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation dedicated to preserving climbing access in the Southeast. We started in 1993 when a group of climbers banded together to help out with ongoing access issues at Sunset Rock, atop Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The group had positive results from the start and went on to sponsor cleanups and trail days of climbing areas, raise money to purchase land and to keep climbing areas open for future generations. SCC volunteers are climbers from Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, North and South Carolina and the Ozarks who have joined forces to resolve local climbing access issues. The Southeastern Climbers Coalition aims to provide an ongoing means for climbers throughout the area to come together and respond effectively to access threats to crags, as well as the impacts of increasing use.

Would you recommend The Southeastern Climbers Coalition?

by Gail V. (September 8, 2014)
The SCC is a grass roots group dedicated to preserving natural areas (obviously climbing as well) for all, and for the future. Non-climbers as well as climbers benefit from the volunteer work. They have pulled huge wire spools, cars, all manner of trash from lakes and surrounding areas. They clean graffiti when possible and practice "No Trace," always leave any area better than you find it, pack out everything and pick up something on your way out. We can't make more land, more rocks, more clean air so we must preserve what we have now. The SCC works closely with National Parks, park rangers and the community to ensure trail work complies with local standards, preserves indigenous flora and fauna, controls erosion and improves safety when appropriate.
