Thank you to Planet Granite, Tommy Caldwell and everyone who came out on October 9 to raise money for the ASCA. Live auctioners Patty and Mitch rallied the crowd to over $7500 in bids which will be matched by the awesome folks at PG: Jeff, Mick, Renee, Carolyn, Stephanie, and many more.

That $7500 combined with a generous individual donation of 5k, the online gear auction, and your individual donations are getting us close to the 20k level to get the full 20k match. But we are not quite there yet

If you are planning to donate to the ASCA this year, please do so before October 15 so your donation will be matched. >>Go To This Link Now

And please check out our ebay auction packed with climbing and outdoor gear. Some barely used hiking boots have no bids!


A big thanks to all our live auction sponsors:
Jim Herson - a day of climbing with Jim raised us $4000
Corey Rich and Aurora Photos
Fixe Hardware - complete set of new Alien Cams raised us $1000
Hans Florine and his Yosemite West House
