Volunteers Clean Up Pinnacle Rock

Re-post from December 18th, 2014

Pinnacle Rock (Plainville, Connecticut) is one CT’s busiest and most accessible crags. Often ATV and party traffic visit the summit leaving their garbage, fire pits and graffiti behind.

On Saturday, December 6, 2014 more than 21 volunteers gathered at Pinnacle despite cold, wet conditions to clean up the crag and pick up broken glass, car parts and garbage. In about 4 hours of work we removed a full pick up truck load of trash.

Our annual Adopt A Crag at Pinnacle Rock is a joint effort with the Access Fund and an important part of our mission to conserve local climbing resources through crag stewardship.

Many thanks to our committed volunteers and local community groups like CT Climbers & Mountaineers and the AMC Connecticut Chapter for their assistance. And thank you to the staff of the Plainville Starbucks for allowing us to dispose of the trash in the store dumpster.

Stay tuned to the RMF Overlook Blog for more stewardship projects and volunteer opportunities.
