Liberty Mountain: Stewards of LCC

This week, a volunteer crew from the Salt Lake Climbers Alliance and staff from Liberty Mountain conducted a graffiti cleanup in an area of Little Cottonwood Canyon called the Swamp.

This zone hosts many classic lines including one of the canyon’s hardest, Eclipse V13. Vandals continue to tag boulders, structures, trees and vegetation in the area, and the SLCA is doing it’s part to try to remove the graffiti as quickly as possible. Graffiti was scrubbed on Moon Rock, the Top Rope Boulder, the Bog Boulders and the Pipeline Boulder.

Please help by donating to the SLCA to help pay for the resources to continue to keep our canyons clean and CALL UPD to report vandalism in the act.

    Hiking the LCC trail on the day this cleanup was going on was SO refreshing to see the work being done to restore the beauty of the boulders. What a HUGE job as the graffiti has gotten so out of hand recently. My friend and I personally thanked those on Moon Rock for their efforts, but this THANK YOU should be extended to ALL who were helping this day. We are not climbers, but we sure do frequent the trail a lot and the “natural beauty” is what we seek….not the defacing of the landscape. BRAVO to ALL of you and your work!!!! I will be making a donation after reading this article.

      Thanks for your recognition of our work and for your support. We agree that you don’t have to be a climber to support the SLCA and protecting the places we all enjoy in the canyons.
