The Birdsboro Climb & Clean is a weekend of work projects, community outreach (UCanClimb2 free climbing introduction) culminating with a Fundraising Dinner and Raffle.

Together we can keep this sport climbing area well maintained to serve both climbers and the local community. Checkout the facebook event page for up the minute info.
