2005 Rifle Mountain Park Climber Clean Up and Party


An Access Fund Adopt-a-Crag Event Presented by Climbing Magazine

When: Saturday, October 15, 9:00 AM

What: The climbing community works together to pick up litter throughout the park. The annual clean-up is a gesture of goodwill to the City of Rifle for their generous support of climbing in their city park.

How it works: Volunteers will be handing out trash bags supplied by the Access Fund at the entrance to the park, the campground, and at the main warm-up crags. Over the course of the day climbers pick up whatever trash they can find. Normal cragging activities are barely affected by the effort – you can still send the proj!

What else is going on: As fun and valuable as the actual clean-up is, the real reason to show up is the party and gear raffle. At 6:30 p.m. at the community house above the campground, the keg donated by Avery Brewing Company will get tapped, the barbecue furnished by Climbing Magazine will commence and music provided by the legendary DJ, Underground Chuck, will begin. Products donated by Black Diamond, Petzl, Prana, Wolverine Publishing, the Access Fund,Climbing Magazine and many others will be raffled off over the course of the evening.

The Rifle Mountain Park Climber Clean-up is one of the biggest climbing parties of the year and a must-attend for anyone that climbs at Rifle. For additional information contact BJ Sbarra at Climbing Magazine: bjsbarra@climbing.com, (970) 704-2613.
