The Southeastern Climbers Coalition was founded in 1993 when a group of
climbers banded together to help with ongoing access issues at Sunset
Rock, atop Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The group had
positive results from the start and went on to sponsor cleanups and trail
days at climbing areas. In 2001, when the boulders at Boat Rock were being
destroyed to make way for a housing development, the SCC raised $100,000
to purchase what they could of the remaining boulders and preserve them. As
of 2013, we now own and manage 6 climbing areas in Tennessee, Alabama,
and Georgia, and lease 2 others. We also own a parking lot for access to the
Deep Creek climbing area in Tennessee.
Our mission is to preserve climbing areas for future generations to enjoy.
To that end, the SCC works hand in hand with the Access Fund, the
Trust for Public Land, and The National Park Service.
The SCC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all donations are
tax deductible. The SCC's federal tax identification number is 62-1548337.

Without all of the donations we receive as well as the many, many volunteers
that attend our events, keeping climbing areas open for future generations
would be impossible. Any and all donations are accepted, but we set the SCC
basic donation at a level of twenty-five dollars. With your donation, you will get our
newsletters, which contain updates on current projects that your donation(s) have
Sustaining Donations, annual donations, and lifetime donations will make you an SCC member.
Certain shops, climbing gyms and other businesses partner with the SCC
to offer discounts and other benefits to our Active Members.
