Bighorn Climbers' Coalition reports successful 2015, plans for 2016

(Sheridan, Wyo.) — The Bighorn Climbers' Coalition has released its 2015 annual report and goals for the coming year. The BCC is a group of "longtime area climbers and Wyoming residents who currently live in the Bighorn Basin invested in forging and maintaining positive connections between the greater climbing community and relevant land managers and local communities." 2015 highlights included: - Signing a cost-share agreement with the Bighorn National Forest formalizes the relationship between the BCC and the Forest Service. The agreement defines mutual goals and outlines steps to achieve them. - Receiving approval for and then paying for the installation and maintenance of two port-a-potties in Ten Sleep Canyon for public use during the high season for climbing (May through September). - Financing a dumpster to collect visiting climbers’ trash during Ten Sleep Canyon’s busy season (May through September), located at the Ten Sleep Brewing Company; also, financing port-a-potties at the brewery to help handle increased climber traffic during the climbing festival and the days surrounding it.
