Craggin’ Classic 2009
When: Oct 9, 2009 – Oct 11, 2009
Where: Salt Lake City, UT
You’ve been hearing rumblings about this for the last couple of months. We’re psyched to unveil the packed schedule of events. The American Alpine Club, with the help of the SLCA, are planning a full weekend of climbing and good times. Plan on spending the days climbing and hanging out in the Wasatch with old and new friends. Camping is part of the deal (we’ve reserved groupsites at Spruces Campground in BCC ) and the parties – with live music and libations of choice – will go on late into the night at Brighton’s Milly Chalet. This is sure to be the biggest climber party Salt Lake has ever seen – think Avalanche Center fundraiser or those Pusher parties from back in the day on steroids…
