It’s time to register for Rock and Rave 2014, an action-packed event billed as the biggest climbing fundraiser ever! The one night event takes place at Stone Summit climbing gym in Atlanta, Georgia on March 8th. Proceeds from this year’s Rock and Rave will go toward paying off the Southeastern Climbers Coalition’s purchase of Alabama’s Hospital boulders. The remaining proceeds will be split between the Access Fund, Southeastern Climbers Coalition, Carolina Climbers Coalition, and Paradox Sports. If last year’s event is any indication, that won’t be pocket change either.
Approximately 1500 people attended Rock and Rave 2013 and raised $35,000 dollars for climbing advocacy groups! And they managed to do it by simply showing up for one whirlwind, non-stop evening of events, slideshows, comps, and, of course, the late night rave. Read more about last year’s Rock and Rave here.
This year looks to be even better. Climber/comedian Timmy Oneill will be the MC and guest stars include Chris Sharma, Tommy Caldwell, Lisa Rands, and Kai Lightner. The most popular activities of last year are returning with a couple new additions as well.
