Think a pandemic can keep us down? Think again! After much deliberation, CRAG Vermont is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the 2020 Vermont Climbing Festival!
Of course, safety and the health of our communities during these uncertain times is our number one concern, so like a good trad climber we’ve taken stock of the situation, assessed what gear we have left and have committed to remaining flexible and creative while we innovate our way to another year of celebrating climbing in Vermont!
Here’s what we have in store for you.
Instead of three days, we have nine days of activities.
Small group clinics spread throughout the entire run, along with
Three trail days, as well as a
Two state-wide climbing competitions!
Since it’s impossible to physically have our presenters come to you this year, we’ve arranged to host a unique livestream experience on the big screen at the Colchester Drive-In on Thursday, September 17th!
On the (very) big screen we will be hosting two extraordinary climbers, Ron Kauk (a Yosemite legend) and Pete Whittaker (of Wideboyz fame) speaking to us live from their homes in California and England (respectively) exclusively for our Vermont climbing audience!
This Drive-In experience will be hosted by Vermont’s own Andrea Charest, co-owner of Petra Cliffs, and will also feature a showing of the Best of Reel Rock, a collection of films voted on and selected by you and the climbing community!
We’ll be rounding out all of the events and activities with an online auction of some great gear from our generous sponsors.
All proceeds go to support CRAG Vermont and the amazing work they do to secure your crags and cliffs. Buy your tickets. Spread the word. Help us celebrate climbing and the amazing community we have here in Vermont!
