/ Yosemite Facelift
I've been to 4 now and it gets better every time. They dont seem to mind if overseas climbers mix a bit of cleaning with a bit of climbing (which suits Moff and I as its usually the end of a multi-week trip and we are normally creaking a bit by then).
Reel Rock 8 was cool to see on the big screen.
Over a million pounds weight of trash have been collected over the 10 years. Even this year some significant weight was shifted. Often the worst bits are under the parking areas.
Because it's in California presumably?
I'm sure this years crew would have had a lot more "trash" to find if it hadn't been cleaned up for the last 9 years. Good work all round I say!
Sorry wasn't implying that. We sort of drifted into it: news travelled of free climbing films and free talks from stars and we went to suss it out and ended up helping.
Yet you are in Yosemite at one of its best times for climbing!?
So presumably you'd go climbing, rather than picking up litter.
Personally I save my crag tidying for my home patch. Somewhere that's far enough away to be a rare/only visit, I'll concentrate on enjoying myself and let the locals put in the effort.
Fair enough but we pick up litter wherever we are so its not an issue for us. Serious volunteers can get free camping as well during the 5 day period. Just advertising a good cause and the amzing show that goes with it.
