SCARPA North America is always psyched to support its partners and their projects, but we get especially stoked when a project goes down around our stomping grounds, like the event planned for this weekend supporting Front Range climbing, just outside of our hometown of Boulder, Colo. The Access Fund, a SCARPA partner, runs a program called Adopt-a-Crag, and October 1-3, the action continues at Lumpy Ridge in Rocky Mountain National Park in Estes, Colo. The event is hosted by the Front Range Section of the American Alpine Club and will be open to the public.
The weekend kicks off with a cocktail party at Ed’s Cantina on Friday evening in Downtown Estes Park, so show up to hang out with some fellow outdoor enthusiasts and throw back some margs, but be ready to roll on Saturday because the day will be chock-full of activities, including a gear demo, climbing clinics, dinner and a slide show by Scott Kimball. Sunday will be devoted to celebrating the place where we play with trail rehab and maintenance back at Lumpy Ridge, led by NPS staff. All volunteers receive a free breakfast and lunch as well as a gift for their work.
Sound good? We think so too. So grab some friends, the family and your gear…the crags are calling.
