Carolina Climbers Coalition
The Carolina Climbers Coalition (CCC) was founded as a nonprofit in 1995 with a mission to preserve, protect, and expand climbing within the Carolinas and beyond. The CCC works with various land managers, State Parks, National Forests, land trusts, other nonprofits, businesses, and the climbing community to help steward areas with existing climbing and open the access door to new climbing areas. TRC has historically supported membership drives, promoting CCC events and through fundraisers like Mile High Climb and various film screenings.
Fayetteville Adaptive Climbing
With support from Duke Adaptive, Triangle Rock Club launched our very own Fayetteville Adaptive Climbing Program in June of 2016. Triangle Rock Club’s Adaptive Climbing Program gives individuals with disabilities the chance to experience the joy and exhilaration of the sport of climbing. Our Fayetteville community trains volunteers prior to our scheduled adaptive climb nights.

TRC's Pledge of Support
Carolina Climbers Coalition
Triangle Rock Club has made a pledge of $50,000 in support to the CCC over the next few years to sustain their efforts of protecting access to climbing lands, maintaining existing climbing areas, and expanding climbing access in the Carolinas and beyond.
Paradox Sports is dedicated to transforming lives and communities through adaptive climbing opportunities that defy convention. They offer accessible climbing opportunities for people with differing abilities, fighting the perception that people with a ‘disability’ cannot lead a life of adventure. Triangle Rock Club partnered with Paradox Sports to host the Paradox Mile, an initiative to raise money for Paradox Sports and its adaptive climbing programs. In September 2022, TRC climbers committed to climbing 5,280 ft, while raising awareness and money for adaptive climbing!
Teams raised money for local causes and competed to log the most climbs in our epic Climbathon event, held on Saturday, October 30th. This five-hour long climbing event was the culmination of a six-week fundraising challenge.
We raised money through TRC’s Climbathon to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Durham and Orange Counties and GallantFew.
Our Climbathon teams raised a combined total of $40,628. As the event concluded, TRC’s Managing Partners elected to provide a company donation to these nonprofits and bring our combined fundraising total to $50,000.
