This year’s special attractions: A new ‘Level Field’ format that eliminates the sandbagging and gives beginners as good of a chance to walk away with ca$h and goods as the pros! Sunday Climbing Clinics with pros like Jason Kehl, more new areas, more projects, a live band, and more food options for vegetarians, and those with food allergies. We are also showing the World Premiere of Rogue State Films’ ‘Reach’, as well as ‘CORE’, a Chuck Fryberger flick.
And last, but certainly not least, is the HP Rocks comp & music festival at Alabama’s Horse Pens 40 over March 4th-5th. This year’s edition of the comp will feature a visit from The North Face’s Daniel Woods and (likely) some other well-known names from Evolv and Asana.
