AAC Regional and Section News

 Drive down the spine of the Southern Appalachians and discover a life time of climbing challenge. Start in West Virginia and the pump of Seneca Rocks. Head south to the AAC campground at the New and tackle the 1600 sport and trad routes around the New River Gorge. Slip down the Blue Ridge into North Carolina for Stone Mountain's friction. Try the wilderness experience of Linville Gorge, the grade V aid lines at Looking Glass and the technical face, splitter cracks and superb bouldering of Rumbling Bald. Come back in the winter to chase our ephemeral southern ice!
