For those that frequent our local bouldering area around Table Rock, you may know the quarry is under new ownership and in the process of expanding. BCA got word that the Table Rock Traverse and the Fortress could be impacted. BCA reached out and worked with Ridge to Rivers and The Masonry Center (new owners of the quarry). These efforts mean that access is currently permitted, but sensitive, and climbers must respect the wishes of the landowners. Building relationships with land managers is a big part of what we do, and a large part of keeping access open. Help us educate your climbing partners to respect closures and boundaries.
The Mine is Private Property! Respect posted signage be aware of the areas that The Masonry Center have asked us to stay out of (maps below). The Fortress and the Traverse do sit on private land owned by The Masonry Center, so it’s imperative to respect the maps and these areas.
Climbers should be using Ridge to Rivers Trail 17/Table Rock Quarry Trail to access the private property. Please note: the mine is actively expanding and please stay away for obvious reasons other than private property. If you have questions please reach out.
And of course — climb on!
