Noah Stevens is a young climber who just recently grew tall enough to reach the holds on the garage woody. Son of Maple Canyon Guidebook author (editions 1,2,3) Jason Stevens, Noah has a love of the outdoors and a passion for discovery and adventure. He has demonstrated a keen eye for new routes, loves new route development and has propensity for bouldering. He is rumored to have been seen in Maple Canyon with a Hilti TE-4A scoping new lines. Mature beyond his years, we can expect good things from him in the future.
National Jamboree 2013 and Eagle Scout: A long term goal
Noah has chosen to attend the National Jamboree at the new Bechtel Summit Reserve, West Virginia in 2013. The merit badges earned and requirements fulfilled there will place him very close to earning his Eagle Scout. It will cost him $2400.00, money he intends to earn through his own efforts and resourcefulness. In addition to mowing lawns and raising chicken/eggs, he will work for his father collecting wild land seeds for range reclamation and wildfire restoration. The biggest share of his money, though, will come from this website where he is part webmaster and part order fulfillment. Portions of his other fees and finances for his Eagle Project will come from donations (see below).
The profits from the guidebooks Noah sells will go directly to his entree fee for the National Jamboree. Any funds he might earn on top of that will help fund his Eagle Project. Your guidebook purchase is MUCH APPRECIATED!
Maple Canyon Eagle Scout Service Project
Noah has already spoken with the Forest Service about his Eagle Project and has several ideas, all of them centered in improving the climbing experience at Maple Canyon. He is considering the following possible projects
- Improved trail / staircase into Lou’s Tavern in the Middle Fork
- Improved trail system and erosion control on the Schoolroom/Road Kill Wall Trail
- Replace protective fence at the Petroglyph Panel / install information panel or kiosk
All of these projects require considerable finances and manpower. If you have recommendations for a Maple Canyon Eagle Project, please make a post comment and he will take it under consideration. If you would like to donate to Noahs Eagle Project, please follow the link below. Thank you very much in advance!
