Chris,
Besides the auction, it looks like you can make a donation, which will be matched by PG up to $10,000. However it also looks like the donation has to be made between April 15-30, so it would be good to bump this thread when that donation window starts.

I'll be sure to make my annual donation to the ASCA within that window.

A day of climbing with Tommy Caldwell
A day of climbing with Chris McNamara

Like any route with a big approach is ok, as long as it is under 24 hour push?

12 hours or under, please. But if it goes for a super generous amount, I know I could be persuaded to climb for 24 hours. Tommy I promised it would be a regular day

The online auction has started but only about 20% of the items are up. I will put up the rest of items by noon tomorrow

You can see more here
