Club Event October 13 – 14

Come out and experience the beautiful fall weather with other local climbers. We will start by cleaning-up trash on Highway 12 for a few hours. Then we will caravan up to Lava Point for some sport climbing at one of the best sport crags in the state.

When we are out of light and energy we will retire to the campfire to share food, drink, and stoke.

Stewardship Opportunity

Learn how to build and sustain trails from the pros! Access Funds Conservation Team West will instruct local climbers on how to build trails that will last. This is a great opportunity to give back and meet other local climbers as well as gain valuable skills for future stewardship events.
