After more than three years of fundraising efforts, the Carolina Climbers Coalition (CCC) made the final payment for the acquisition of Laurel Knob in Western North Carolina. Arguably the tallest cliff in the eastern United States, Laurel Knob boasts stunning water-grooved granite routes up to ten pitches long. The CCC purchased 50 acres of cliff line, which had been poached by climbers for nearly 30 years, in 2006 for $250,000. Members of the climbing community from all over the region and beyond contributed to this purchase, enabling climbers to send some of the most foreboding and rewarding lines in the Southeast.
