Saint Helena Face Lift

Mount Saint Helena has some of the best rock in the Bay Area.  From the summit of many of the routes, there are beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean, Mount Diablo, Mount Tam, and San Francisco.  The hike through the pine trees to the base of the crag is incredible and Robert Louis Stevenson is one of California's best state parks.  To keep the area as pristine and gorgeous as it is requires lots of time and effort. 

On Saturday, May 12th, the Access Fund is organizing an adopt-a-crag event.  This will be a great event to help the park get cleaned up.  There will be some trail work, some area restoration, lots of climbing, and a ton of fun.  Harrison Hood will be there at 10 am to facilitate the event.  For more information This email address is being protected from spambots.
