RENDEZVOUS EVENT PHILOSOPHY:We have structured this event for max participation. Obviously, we want you to show up, but that ain’t enough. We are convinced you’ll have even more fun if you jump in with both feet. Sign up for a clinic, sumo wrestle, dominate the dyno comp, do something silly to win some Darn Tough socks. So what if you aren’t some hardbody, high number rad climber — compete anyway. The climbing comp has a Top Rope division, for crying out loud! Compete and you will climb better. We guarantee it.

Whether you’re planning on competing, signing up for a clinic or just want to watch the rock stars, go to www.newriverrendezvous.com to find more information and register.
