Summer has rolled around and we have some great upcoming events!    <https://gallery.mailchimp.com/60afa02764806293a37aacfda/images/Vermweb.1.jpg> 

First, a very special event with John "Verm" Sherman is on the calendar.  In Bishop, the Verm will be presenting, "The Goddamn Platinum Age of American Bouldering," a look back at the formulate years of the sport--before crash pads and it's subsequent sissy-ification.  Don't miss these shows!  Beer, storytelling, raffles, & debauchery.  Check the calendar below for more information.

Also, later in August, we are holding our annual Climber Steward Weekend in Tuolumne Meadows.  This is a weekend of free camping and climbing up in the high country with two days of working with the backcountry rangers improving climber access trails.  See below for more info.

As always, keep your eyes posted for updates and more events!

If you can't hang, go back to your bounce house and cower. We're taking it back to the old school. We're taking it back to when climbing was real. And we're being guided on our journey of rediscovery by the original bad ass himself, Mr. John "Verm" Sherman. The show starts at 8:00pm. Be prepared. Beers, raffles, storytelling, & debauchery.  Cost is $10 at the door.
