The Bay Area Climbers Coalition focuses on identifying and creating opportunities within the climbing community for maintaining/renewing access, educating climbers, becoming better stewards, and hosting conservation events.
We encourage any climber who has an idea for a crag clean-up event, community education project, or more to contact us at [masked].
Thank you for your interest in volunteering your time to play a major role in helping to clean-up Indian Rock.

Indian Rock (in the South Bay) is one of the premier Bay Area crags with amazing bouldering, top rope, and sport climbs. Many climbers know it as the "sweet free parking spots for Castle Rock" but many more know it as home to some of the best boulder problems in the greater Castle Rock area.
Join the Bay Area Climbers Coalition in partnering with the Santa Clara County Parks department to take on some needed cleaning and maintaince around Indian Rock.
Besides all the awesome work that we will be doing, there will also be tasty free food, VIP/reseved parking, sweet raffle prizes, and post clean-up event sloper crushing.
Teams of 2 or 3 will be sent to each of the different bouldering and rope climbing areas to pick up trash, clear trails, identify and block off "rogue" trails, and brush off any excess chalk.
The "main event" will take place at Indian Rock itself. Volunteers are needed to help with the construction of a trail from upper to lower Indian Rock. The current trail is causing erosion issues, and in general is unsafe and unsightly for climbers, hikers, and other users of the park space.
Parking - We will be working with the Santa Clara County Parks department to block off the parking spots at Indian Rock. Please try and carpool with other climbers from your area. You can arrange carpools via the Bay Area Climbers Coalition's facebook group.
Food - We are working on food and snack sponsors for this event. If you know of someone who would be interested in sponsoring, please have them contact us.
Water - We will have water and other hydrating beverages available. If you have a water bottle, please feel free to bring it with you. Please note, there is not a water fountain at Indian Rock.
Tools - we will be getting tools and gloves from the Santa Clara County Parks department, you are also welcome to bring your own lucky shovel, push broom, or gloves.
