The Minnesota Climbers Association and Midwest Mountaineering are hosting this year's Taylors Falls clean-up. Join us at Interstate State Park in Taylors Falls for the annual Adopt a Crag event. We will be picking up litter, doing trail maintenance, and removing invasive species and graffiti. Bring gloves and wear appropriate clothing. After the clean up, let's go climbing! See you there!

Meet at the park office & don't forget to register for your climbing permit. It's FREE!

Contact [masked] for more information.

    On behalf of Midwest Mountaineering, I would like to thank everyone who came out to the Taylors Falls Clean Up! We had record breaking numbers and SUNSHINE! We cleaned, we ate, won prizes, and played!

    A big shout out to all the manufacturers and others who donated to the cause -Prana, Mad Rock, Sterling, Metolius, OR, Black Diamond, Patagonia, Scarpa, LaSportiva, Sigg, Access Fund, MCA, Mike Farris, and hopefully not too many others that I am forgetting. I swear, that may have been the longest raffle in the history of raffles!

    TBC...

      The Park Rangers seem to absolutely love and appreciate climbers. Lead Ranger, Ron (who came on his day off to help with this!!) let us know about the numerous projects going on within the park. He also asked that we try and keep our group sizes to a minimum and avoid having too many unused ropes hanging. Remember to fill out and keep your climbing permit with you - good for the calendar year at Interstate Park only. Jeff Engel also talked about some exciting things going on around Sandstone (I will let him explain that further).

      Again, thank you for coming out. Your efforts DO make a positive impact on access to this climbing area.

      Look forward to seeing everyone next year!

    A few notes from the park:
    *Vehicle permits for participants in the cleanup will be waived as long as they have notification on their dash that they are volunteers. Stop by the Midwest Mountaineering tent OR the park office for more information.

      *All climbers at Interstate must have an individual climbing permit or be climbing under a valid Interstate State Park Commercial Climbing permit. Individual permits will be made available at the booth. Persons trying out climbing shoes will need a climbing permit.
