A look at what is happening with TCRC Meetup and beyond.
TCRC at the North Shore
Thanks to Matt Holland for organizing a great weekend camping and climbing at the North Shore. Palisade Head, Shovel Point, and Wolf Ridge were climbed, boulders were found, rivers were jumped in, food was consumed, friends were made, rebel camps existed. All in all, good fun. The Minnesota Climbers Association (MCA) throws a similar kind of event over Labor Day weekend. Get details on here.
Save Sandstone Bouldering!
MCA is working with Parks and Trails Council of MN and Access Fund to purchase land with amazing boulders in Sandstone, MN. Learn more about the project and how you can help here.
Join us for an exclusive Cosmic Rock Climbing Party at Vertical Endeavors! VE will shut off the lights and we will light up the climbing walls with Blacklights & LED lighting. Sonic Sound DJ Entertainment will be co-hosting the party with VE. RSVP here.
TCRC Meetup Benefit Card
The TCRC Meetup Benefit Card is $5, can hang from your harness to identify you as a Meetup climber to others, and gets you discounts at Minneapolis and St Paul VE. Read about how to get your Benefit Card and VE discounts here.
Women of TCRC unite! Carolyn Hanson's women's only nights have been a success and enjoyed by many. Now, a Facebook group just for women climbers has been created to keep the dialogue going. Join here. Check the calendar for future women's events.
