first event at Hound Ears postponed because of rain and flooding, but psych was high and the weather was stellar for the Stone Fort comp. “A picture perfect day”, said Chad Wykle, one of the founders and co-organizers of the event.
Stone Fort was a success with over $2,500 raised through raffles and Southeastern Climbers’ Coalition membership sales. The money will go towards continued efforts to preserve and maintain local climbing areas. Wykle and Horton would like to thank everyone and especially the sponsors for the continued support of the event, and hope to see you at Hound Ears on November 7th.
