Result: 1 climbing area acquired & 50 acres protected

Laurel Knob is a stunning granite cliff in Western North Carolina. Carolina Climbers Coalition succeeded in purchasing the formation and its surrounding forest and wetlands, forever preserving Laurel Knob for climbers and wildlife habitat. We supported this acquisition with a $30,000 grant in 2006.
