Week ten, Crew Two trudged back up Sinking Creek Mountain in Southwest Virginia to finish up some unfinished business from the week before. Both a cribbed rock staircase exiting a rock slide and a crib wall at the switchback needed to be completed, and with a small crew of only five volunteers and two Crew leaders they had their doubts about being able to finish both of these technical projects.
Although it was a small Crew, it luckily consisted of one heck of a cast of volunteers. The Crew consisted of almost all alumni, several being veterans of many years. The lesser experienced happened to be quick learners just as much as they were hard workers. This mix combined with a few members from the Roanoke Appalachian Trail Club, who worked alongside Konnarock, gave the Crew a fighting chance to achieve their goals for the week.
Great job, Crew Two, for making a solid dent in this tough project. Considering the small Crew size, the effort this week was quite a feat. Until next time… HYAW!!!
