The Bend Climbing Team spent some time helping keep a local bouldering area clean and climbable!

 

The Bend Climbing Team and Central Oregon Rocks joined forces for a fall clean-up day out at the Widgi boulders. The Widgi boulders lie on Forest Service land close to town and see lots of climbing traffic. The day was wet and windy, but that didn't stop members of the team from getting out and lending a hand to make sure climbers will continue to have access to this climbing area.

The team spent some time hunting for trash along the trails and climbing areas.  As a group we found everything from bottles and cans to a sock and an arrow!  After trash detail the crew moved on to marking out some trails to help keep climbers from trampling through the vegetation.

Even though it decided to rain a bit on us during the day the area doesn't see tons of rain, which means the holds tend to get pretty caked with chalk, so the team went to work with some serious hold scrubbing.

After all that hard work we enjoyed some hot-dogs around the fire and listened in to Eric from COR give some pointers on leave no trace and how it relates to bouldering.  Fueled up on Red Vines and hot-dogs the team hit the boulders to get in some climbing time before the rain came.

Thanks to Central Oregon Rocks (C.O.R) for helping us out and providing direction!  Please take a moment to check them out on Facebook and on their website.
