“Black Diamond is an instrumental partner to the SLCA,” said Julia Geisler, SLCA Executive Director. “This event is our main annual fundraiser of the year, and without the support of Black Diamond, other sponsors and attendees, the SLCA would not be able to act as a unified voice for Wasatch climbers.”

SLCA is a 501c(3) non-profit organization created to promote climbing opportunities, to preserve local climbing access and to encourage stewardship of the environment in the Wasatch and beyond. SLCA is currently replacing worn out bolts and anchors and improving trails that provide access to local crags. The SLCA continually advocates for the sport and offers educational events and programs to ensure local climbing areas stay open to the public.

“This event embodies the spirit of the Salt Lake climbing community and has been a huge success for the last 6 years,” states Jonathan Thesenga, Black Diamond Equipment’s global sports marketing manager. “The SLCA plays an important role for climbers in the Wasatch and we are proud to support them and their efforts in climbing stewardship.”

The fundraiser will include an evening of food, drinks, raffles and music to benefit the SLCA. It will be held outdoors, rain or shine. All children under the age of 21 must be accompanied by an adult, and dogs are prohibited. Tickets can be purchased for $25 atSaltLakeClimbers.org.

Associated sponsors include: Petzl, Liberty Mountain, REI, backcountry.com, Momentum, Mountain Education & Development, CAMP 4 Human Performance, lululemon athletica, Goal Zero and Utah Adventure Journal.
