WCCC Under Contract for TV Wall parcel

WCCC is under contract to sell the parcel located at the base of the Sunday Wall trailhead. We'll keep you updated. We're very excited to close on the sale and pay off our loan to the Access Fund. As you may be aware, WCCC purchased properties that include major climbing venues; over the past several years, we have subdivided the cliffs to "keep" while ensuring free and open access to our favorite Unaweep cliffs. Our intention has been to sell the buildable parcels on the highway frontage in an effort to retire our debt to the Access Fund.  We appreciate the patience of the AF through this slow and arduous process.
Help WCCC raise funds to cover closing costs and maintain our tax-exempt status for the property's management.  Click on the "donate now" button on the left side of this website!  Thanks, Eve

Guide Services and Institutions

The following guide services and educational institutions are authorized to use the Unaweep cliffs owned by Western Colorado Climbers' Coalition. These organizations are insured and have official permission to guide on our lands, and we urge folks seeking a guide to support these folks. Please report violations; unauthorized guiding puts us all at risk and is not fair to the guides who have been diligent in securing legal access. WCCC thanks them for their ongoing support of the Western Colorado Climbers' Coalition. If you feel your organization has been left off this list inadvertently, or to report violations, please contact evetallman [at] gmail.

Unaweep Real Estate Update

We have closed on the sale of the building lot at the base of the Mothers Buttress. It's quite a milestone for us. The neighbors seem like really nice folks and are moving to Unaweep from out-of-state to build a home.
We have the TV Wall property listed for sale. Check it out at The well permit is in place and we're in the process of completing the process to obtain a CDOT driveway permit. What a great place to live--with the Sunday Wall trailhead as a neighbor!
A special thanks goes out to Steve Johnson, Dave Foley, and Jesse Zacher for all their work on this.
