Betagraph Gets New Trail

Many thanks to the six badasses who came out Saturday to replace the rock steps on the approach to Betagraph! Amazing how much work got done! We formed the very upper, steepest part of the trail into a switchback, so please use it and pass the word along! Here are some pics from the day:

Betagraph Trail Work Saturday October 25!!!

Yep, we'll finally be heading out to get this done! Weather forecast calls for 63 and sunny...perfect conditions for getting the upper approach to Betagraph worked into a more stable trail.

As this follows the October 4th Adopt-a-Crag, it will be an unsupported work day. Bring water, food, and anything else that might help get you through the day. With enough people we should be able to knock out the work in half a day or so. Work boots and gloves might be a good idea too if you have them.

See y'all Saturday!

October 4 Adopt-a-Crag A Soggy Success

Our first Adopt-a-Crag was held October 4th amid morning temperatures in the mid- to upper-40s, and rain that began as a drizzle and became heavier and more consistent as the day progressed. Fourteen people came out to help, and were greeted by a very much appreciated 3 jugs of coffee from Cafe Ibis. Chris and Susan's bag-o-cookies hit the spot, too.

As the weather prohibited intended trail work at
Betagraph, focus was placed on collecting garbage from climbing areas, campsites, and from along the roadside throughout Logan Canyon. Three groups worked for about four hours in extremely wet conditions, collecting 40ish(?) bags of trash and two tires.

Due to the wet weather, a number of coalition members have made plans to finish the trail work component of our project on evenings or weekends as weather permits.
