Lets Meetup and lend a hand to the Ragged Mountain Foundation (http://raggedmtn.org/) and the Access Fund (http://accessfund.org/) for a community crag clean up at West Rock Ridge State Park.

Saturday, April 6, 2013 | 9am

Many have read the recent article in Rock & Ice Magazine featuring climbing at West Rock. Unfortunately the crag is riddled with trash, graffiti and storm debris. Most of our efforts will focus on the south buttress crag and trails.

The RMF and Access Fund have secured permission from the State of Connecticut DEEP to host a volunteer community cleanup. We hope you’ll join us!

Please sign up on the Facebook event page (https://www.facebook.com/events/472728342794715/). Check back for weather updates and important announcements.

What to Bring:
Weather appropriate work clothing, climbing helmet, water, high energy snacks, work gloves and personal items. RMF will provide tools, garbage bags, etc.

Where to Meet:
We’ll meet at 9am in the parking lot near the West Rock ballpark on Valley Street, just one block north of Blake Street. Additional parking on the corner of Whalley Ave & Blake Street.
