Who: Climbers Alliance of Southcentral Alaska (CASA)
Climbers Alliance is a coordinated effort among volunteers in our local climbing community to make our crags better through whatever efforts and jobs need to be done. We want to ensure that our crags are not only open and accessible to climbing, but also stay beautiful and well-kept. Climbers Alliance began organizing in late 2017 and formally incorporated as a 501c3 non-profit in January of 2019.
Event sponsors: Alaska Rock Gym, Moose’s Tooth, Alaska Mountaineering and Hiking, and the Hoarding Marmot
A fundraiser for the Climbers Alliance of Southcentral Alaska (CASA). The fundraiser will include a dyno comp and a crate stacking contest. There will be first place prizes for the men’s and women’s dynos and for the crate stacking. These have been donated by AMH and the Hoarding Marmot. Moose’s Tooth is donating kegs, as well.
The minimum donation will be $5 in order to participate in the dyno comp HOWEVER there will be a suggested donation of $15.
At the Alaska Rock Gym on Thursday, May 5 (Cinco de Mayo!!) from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m.
The Climbers Alliance is a non profit, and the board has been volunteering both time and money to complete our projects. While we are still happy to do so, it is not a sustainable path for this organization. As our projects and goals get bigger, we need more funds to complete them. We love doing trail maintenance and keeping our crags sustainable and clean, but we also want to be able to protect access, which may require purchasing property or paying legal fees.
The whole point of this event will be to get together, celebrate the start of the outside season, and raise money for CASA.
