To Climb Every Quarry

A series of public suggestions for civic improvement

“What I would really like to see is rock climbing in Mead’s Quarry. Ijams allows mountain biking—which, by the way has boosted Knoxville’s outdoor status—yet climbing is not permitted. Here is a resource that could be tapped to create another great outdoor recreational opportunity right here in town. Both bouldering and rock climbing could be developed there ‘safely’ if the right amount of effort went into it.”

—Kelly Brown, owner/operator at Bower Bird Sculpture and avid climber
