Grand-Further 25K

Grandfather Mountain, sitting at 5,945 feet tall is the most iconic mountain in all the Southern Appalachians. It is rich in scenery and bio-diversity and home to some of the most gnarliest trails you can find on the east coast. So what better place to hold a pure mountain race?!?!

The Grand-Further Mountain Run is the premiere mountain race in North Carolina. The 25 kilometer course will climb Grandfather Mountain a total of two times from both sides of the mountain. The terrain is unforgiving, extremely technical, but most of all, astounding! Fixed ropes and ladders are even placed in certain sections of the trails to assist in climbing the tallest mountain in the Blue Ridge Mountain Range. This race is not for the faint of heart or the weak of knees. It demands your best and your utmost respect.


Registration opens March 25th at 8am! We expect the race to sell very fast due to are low cap numbers of 170 runners. Don't delay!

For hikers and outdoor enthusiasts of all interests, Trail Days is a must-do festival. Since 1987, the sleepy Virginia town of Damascus has hosted this wild party, which acts as a big family reunion for Appalachian Trail thru-hikers from different generations. Every year approximately 20,000 people descend on “Trail Town, USA” to trade boot-worn stories by bonfire, dress up in crazy costumes and march in a parade, check out a variety of gear booths, and get rowdy at the campgrounds in the evenings. The fest also features films, talks, and presentations by A.T. legends of yesteryear, live music from regional roots acts, and plenty of displays of Trail Magic—with locals providing food and gear repairs for hikers currently on the A.T.

If you raced at the Shenanduro the past 3 years, then you know what a good time it is! If you haven't, now's the time to join us for this day of endurance mountain biking, camaraderie, chilling with your teammates in the pop-up tent city, cooking out, maybe getting muddy, and definitely having a great time on some of the best trails in Virginia. It's fast and smooth and really, really fun out there at Shenandoah River State Park! Test your endurance by taking on the 6- or 12-hour mountain bike course, solo or with as big a team as you like.

We'll be doing (really good) prizes (warning: this gets pretty competitive!) and music changes per crowd request every hour. We'll have the grill going with burgers and dogs. The river is handy if you need to cool off, and we'll have a firepit going when your legs need a break. It's a good time, y'all.



  • A great course through Shenandoah River State Park and along the South Fork of the Shenandoah River

  • Chip timing and real-time lap results

  • Great swag

  • Prizes for top three winners in each division

UP Adventure and Seneca Rock Mountain Guides Present

Climb the Classics
Nelson Rock Climbing Event

Closed to the public for years, Nelson Rocks West Virginia is a unique place. Long airy routes that have magnificent view and fresh moves for you to conquer. The 007 Wall, Area 51 and Crescendo Wall are classic climbing areas at Nelson Rocks. We will provide top rope climbs on many of the classic during the big Cinco de Mayo celebration at Seneca Rocks this May 4th.

Join UP Adventure and Seneca Rocks Mountain Guides as we hang top ropes on 10 of the classic rock climbs at Nelson Rocks. We will provide gear if needed to new climbers. These are amazing climbs that are not open to the public.

One of the best places in the Panhandle area for all around climbing, Nelson offers climbing in both Sport and Traditional styling, as well as a few boulders if you can get your eyes off the two fins that surround you as you walk the corridor trail. The rock is the same Tuscarora Quartzite as Seneca and Champe Rocks located to the north.

Getting There
The easiest way for most is by Taking Rt. 33 like you would going to Seneca, then past Judy Gap, take a left onto Rt. 28, drive <1/2 mile and you'll see a Yellow house on the left, along with a sign for the Via Ferrata and the North Fork Canopy Tour. Turn left there onto Nelson Gap Road and follow that road about 150 yards to the Nelson Rock Outdoor Center Welcome center, it is currently under construction but should be completed soon.

What is top rope climbing?
Top roping is a style of climbing where the climber is protected from falling by having a rope attached to their harness that is also connected to an anchor system above them and then “belayed” by someone standing on the ground. As the climber climbs, the person belaying minimizes the slack in the belay system so that a fall by a climber is very minimal. The climber usually climbs to their anchor system, and then gets lowered down to the ground. Top roping is one of the more popular styles in most gyms across the US. It is very beginner friendly, but is also enjoyed by climbers with years of experience.

What can I expect from a day on the rocks?
Our top rope instructors attempt to do two things; teach relevant rock climbing skills, and maximize rock climbing time. If you’re more interested in learning, or more interested in maximizing trips up and down the rock face, just let your instructor know, and they will cater to your needs.

Is top rope climbing safe?
While top rope climbing shares many dangers that are inherent in outdoor activities, when setup correctly the belay system used in top rope climbing minimizes the length of a fall. The belay system ensures that when a climber lets go of the rock face, they are suspended in the air until they can regain contact with the rock face or be lowered to the ground by their belayer. To minimize risk, all instructors at NROCKS Outdoor Adventures are trained with the highest regard to safety, and certified in CPR and first aid.

Climbing Guides provided by Seneca Rocks Mountain Guides. We will spend 8 hours rock climbing so please bring snacks and water for the day.
