Climb, Clean and Everything In Between

There's nothing quite like a clean rock climb.

Or, to be more specific, a clean place to climb rocks.

Towards that end, the nice folks at the Birdsboro Area Climbing Association will be cleaning up around their climbing location all weekend and it's a great opportunity to be introduced to the sport.

The site is located in preserved land just outside Birdsboro's Rustic Park.

According to their web site, the Birdsboro Climb and Clean is a weekend of work projects, community outreach (UCanClimb2 free climbing introduction) culminating with a Fundraising Dinner and Raffle. Camping is permitted during this weekend at the Millard House (the house immediately after the 1st Wire Bridge crossing at Rustic Park) and in designated areas near the climbing Area
The Birdsboro Area Climbers Association (a Pennsylvania Not-For-Profit) raises much of it’s yearly operating expenses during this event.

This is an opportunity to give back to the climbing community by supporting it with volunteer work and participation in the Dinner/Raffle (dinner is $10 per person).

Gloves, shovels, are always helpful for work projects. Free lunch provided for volunteers. Camping is permitted in approved areas beginning Friday evening. Come out and spend a rockin’ weekend with us!

*UCanClimb2 is a free intro to climbing including harness/helmets provided by Reading Rocks & their Floor People.
