Calaveras Dome/Ellis Rd. Mini Facelift
« on: October 24, 2011, 11:22:59 am »
Sad to see a beautiful area like this get trashed. We started picking up trash at the top of Ellis Rd. and stopped at the first bridge before the Cal Dome approaches. We picked up along the river and a couple of the bigger campgrounds as well. There are still a few areas that need some lovin' but managed to get most of it. There was a lot...

Anyone interested in doing an annual Cal Dome facelift should post up or contact me. Maybe we can get something going for around this time next year, before the upper road closes. I'd donate the food and beer as well as the gloves and trashbags. The fall temps would be perfect for climbing too!

Thanks!

Max,
I'd be down for that. Haven't really gotten on too much there, but it's such a unique area, it deserves to stay clean.
good on ya,
M

Props for the idea and the effort.

Nice to see this kind of grassroots initiative. Without headliners and prizes. Keep us posted on timing.
Say no to limbers, excavators and retro-bolters. No matter how much he smiles.

I'm down.
Sometimes the difference between a layman and a journeyman is simply what he is allowed to believe himself to be.

I look forward to making it happen next fall. It'll need some lovin by then, I'm sure.

Be stoked to meet some of the bigwalls folks, keep ya posted.
