Climbers block your calendar app for September 15-17, 2017.

Once again the American Alpine Club has lined up an amazing weekend climbing event focused on community, competency, and conservation. Each year climbers come from all over for clinics, food, beverages and the Craggin' Classic Raffle and slide shows.

Climbing rock stars Tommy Caldwell, Jeremy Collins, Graham Zimmerman and Meagan Martin are lined up with slide shows and clinics, along with local Chockstone Climbing Guides. If that wasn't enough, there's free food and beer, raffle, auction, sponsor and non-profit booths, trail work led by the "Mayor of Smith Rock," Ian Caldwell, and more.

Participating non-profits include Access Fund, Mazamas, Cascades Mountaineers, Brothers of Climbing and Portland Mountain Rescue. Thanks so far to Edelrid, Petzl, Redpoint Climbers Supply, Butora, FiveTen and others for sponsorship.

Registration opens July 17! RSVP here for updates
