Bend, Ore. (April 2, 2013) – Metolius, makers of the safest and best rock climbing gear around, support the 10th Annual Red Rock Rendezvous.The Red Rock Rendezvous will be held April 5-7 in Las Vegas, NV, with events including clinics, climbing, demos, yoga, mountain biking and other festivities.

Metolius athletes Jonathan Siegrist, and Don and Amy Welsh will be on hand to coach clinics. “The Red Rock Rendezvous is a great event,” says Amy Welsh. “It’s fun to come out here and teach what we know about the sport to new and enthusiastic climbers.”

Celebrating a decade of tradition this year, the Red Rock Rendezvous attracts all levels of climbers to learn everything from multi-pitching to backcountry cooking.Pros and experts in each field teach a variety of clinics.Attendees enjoy on-site camping, beer from New Belgium and other memorable events. Unlike many climbing festivals, the Red Rock Rendezvous is geared towards learning and fun instead of competition.

Metolius is a long time sponsor and returns this year to join other sponsors including The North Face, Kleen Kanteen, Climbing Magazine and Scarpa in helping make the event happen. Proceeds from the event benefit the Access Fund, The American Safe Climbing Association, the American Alpine Club and the Las Vegas Climber Liaison Council.

“We love being a part of this event,” says Brooke Sandahl, Vice President of Metolius Climbing. “Our dedication to make quality gear is driven by a passion for the sport and we think events like this are awesome because they highlight why people love to climb.It’s cool to see our athletes and employees teach clinics to share their passions with other enthusiasts.”
