Tie in with the AAC and CAMP USA for the widely anticipated return of the Shelf Road Craggin’ Classic! Together again, we will celebrate camaraderie and our shared love for Shelf-the land of limestone pocket pulling, crimp crushing, and bolt clipping.

RMFI will host two volunteer days at the Craggin' Classic on Saturday, October 23 and Sunday, October 24. Sign up by following this link!

For 2021 we have an incredible weekend in store: a stacked lineup of clinics taught by professional climbers and local guides; inspiring films and speakers like Jordan Cannon, Paige Claassen, and Graham Zimmerman; local food trucks with tasty grub; free beer abounds; and multiple stewardship projects! Be sure to bring your dancing shoes and Halloween costumes for the live DJ dance party and costume contest! Plus you can win top end gear in our raffles, games, and silent auctions.

Do some fabulous bolt clipping in the sun, get inspired, learn new techniques, and give some love to this amazing community. That’s the Shelf Road Craggin’ Classic in a nutshell.

Space is limited and THIS EVENT WILL SELL OUT! Registration opens Aug 24 and closes Oct 21, or when sold out.
