Join us Thursday, May 20th 2010 from 6-10 PM at the Black Diamond courtyard at 2084 East 3900 South, Salt Lake City. Food and beverages will be provided by Desert Edge Brewery with Lortsher & Vlasic doing the catering. There will be stories, a raffle and slide shows by Doug Heinrich, Drew Bedford and the SLCA.

Tickets per person will be $30 before May 15th and $35 after May 15th, premium tickets are $50 and cover entrance to the event, an SLCA yearly membership, t-shirt and gym passes. (While they last!) Tickets can be purchased at the Black Diamond retail store located at 2084 East 3900 South or I.M.E. located at 3265 East 3300 South.

The SLCA would not exist without the generous support of the climbing community, our sponsors and individual climbers like you! Please help us continue our efforts to protect access and maintain crags by attending this fun event.

You may be a climber, but are you a Fast and Fit climber? Our first annual Fast and Fit Climber Competition will give climbers of all ability levels an opportunity to compete in events that will test their balance, coordination, speed, and strength. You may climb 5.14, but how fast can you rodeo clip? How about jugging a fixed line? Can you campus a short route? Come test your skills and see if you are the Fastest and Fittest Climber. Register here.

Time: 7 p.m. – 10 p.m.
