Thank you so much for caring for your corridor. We will organize another clean up in 2024. In the meantime, if you pack it in, pack it out!
The Annual David Thompson Clean up is organized by Jordyn Hansen, Brinnae Erb, and Jonathan Waterman from the David Thompson Climbing Association.
My need to be among the mountains started early. I grew up running through the forests of the west country with my brother donning a Davey Crockett inspired hat. My Dad would tell me stories about how brave and wise the wildlife is, stories that I now relay to younger generations.
I didn’t grow up climbing, I started only four years ago. When I was working in New Zealand I suffered a life changing injury that lead me to climbing. Since then the pursuit of climbing has consumed my life. I moved home (Central Alberta) nearly two years ago and began climbing in the DTC. It felt so good to be home.
To see the places you love disintegrate is disheartening, thats why I felt called to action. These landscapes are sacred and will change you, so, taking responsibility for and protecting the places I love feels as natural as breathing.
