Justin on the boulder.
This past weekend Justin (Volcanic Rock Gym) organized a beach cleanup at Waimea. Just as surfers take care of the sand and sea, climbers take care of the rock and surrounding area. At Waimea though, it’s not really the climbers you have to worry about when it comes to trash, it’s the folks that drink and barbeque and let’s face it, the crack-heads and homeless. But while it’s not our responsibility to clean up after them, we want to take care of this beautiful place and make it a safer climbing environment. As an added bonus, the beach looks cleaner and the trash won’t blow into the ocean. It’s a win-win situation for all. Even for the crack-heads.
A good crowd showed up. We picked up a bunch of rubbish and then hit the rock. It was a productive morning.
