Adopt-a-Crag Trail Work & BBQ

UPDATED 9/14/15

The Telluride Mountain Club would like to extend a big ‘Thank You’ to all that came out to help improve the trails to the Ilium Boulders. We did trail work on the south trail to improve use and create sustainability during spring runoff, etc. We would recommend using this south trail for all of your bouldering need in Ilium until we can create improvements on the north trail.




When: Saturday, September 12
Where: Illium Boulders (Park at Mary E at the Illium Campground)

What: Trail Work & Bouldering BBQ


Join the Telluride Mountain Club, the USFS and the Access Fund on Saturday, September 12th for some much needed work on the trails leading to the Illium Boulders! Keeping climbing areas open and conserving the environment is important. So, we plan to create a new main trail that will be more sustainable that will fork to the bouldering area and restore the two that are currently in place. 

Volunteers need to wear adequate clothing (we recommend long pants), wear closed-toed shoes, bring work gloves and sign a volunteer agreement with the USFS. We will be having a free BBQ after for all to enjoy along with SWAG. See you on Saturday, September 12th for the Illium Boulders Work Day!

7:30AM: Coffee & Donuts
8:00AM: Trails Orientation
8:30AM-1:30PM: Trail Work
1:30PM-3:30PM: Bouldering & BBQ

Did we mention we have SWAG! For our helpers who come out on Saturday we’ve got a bunch of items to give away, here are some of the great items:

  • Access Fund Membership
  • Telluride Winter Climbing Gym Membership 2015-2016
  • Telluride Mountain Club t-shirts & hats
  • Clif Bars

It is a goal of the Telluride Mountain Club and the Access Fund to protect our local climbing areas and promote personal responsibility. By becoming stewards of the Illium Boulders, Telluride Mountain Club aims to advocate for a more environmentally sustainable culture through this kickstart initiative. For more information on ways you can get involved, visit the Access Fund website.
