Several SCARPA-sponsored athletes will offer climbing clinics and demo shoes. “SCARPA has made the clinics possible because it allows us to keep costs way down,” said Big-Cheese Rendezvous Organizer, Maura Kistler. SCARPA is bringing four athletes to The ‘Vous: boulderers Dan Horne and Michael Rosato, route climber Seth Bentley, and Editor of dpmclimbing.com, climber, and author, Mike Williams.
