Long time collaborators in some of the world’s finest mountain apparel, Schoeller and Mammut are partnering at the seventh annual Red Rocks Rendezvous in Las Vegas, Nevada to support the Access Fund. At the event, which runs from March 19-21, stop by the Mammut tent to purchase a limited edition pint glass. All proceeds go directly to the Access Fund.

Schoeller and Mammut will also be raffling various products during the event.

“As a long-standing partner of the Access Fund, we like to support climbers and climbing access whenever possible,” said Mike Welch, Sales and Marketing Director for Mammut Sports Group USA. “This is just one way we can give back to the climbing community, at an event that is truly representative of the celebration of the sport.”

“Schoeller and Mammut have worked together for many years creating performance apparel that has been loved by all kinds of climbers,” says Shannon Walton of Schoeller Textil AG. “It is a pleasure to work together now at climbing events to support the organization that advocates for climbers and keeps access open to the very places that feed our souls and provide inspiration.”
