2019 Peregrine Falcon Closures

There is a confirmed active Peregrine Falcon nest on the route Fathom Escape Hatch at Laurel Knob. The CCC has instituted a closure of Fathom and the nearby routes to help protect the nest. The adult pair is very active in the area and they will likely dive bomb you if you enter the closure area. Please respect this voluntary closure and stay off the routes around Fathom until further notice. Thanks for your cooperation.

Visit for more info. If you’re not a CCC member, consider joining!

Melrose Mountain Climbing Area

A new climbing area, Melrose Mountain, has been opened near Tryon, NC. In 2019, the CCC worked with the Town of Tryon and Blue Ridge Adventure Guides to negotiate public climbing access at Melrose Mountain. Thank you Town of Tryon and BRAG! The two climbing areas are located on Hogback Mountain Road, about 8 miles outside of Tryon's downtown. The two separate areas are less than a mile apart from each other. For more info about Melrose Mountain, visit the CCC’s website.

The North Face Global Climbing Day

Saturday, August 24


It’s time to rethink the way we look at walls. At The North Face, we see walls as places where people in the climbing community come together to test themselves, build trust, and strengthen bonds. Our 2018 global brand program, “Walls Are Meant For Climbing,” aims to counter the divisions we’re witnessing globally by inviting people to find trust in community.

For more information on “Walls Are Meant for Climbing” and Global Climbing Day, visit Thenorthface.Com/Walls.
