Live Auction Fundraiser for the ASCA featuring guest speaker Chris Sharma

Credit: Chris McNamara

Planet Granite has pledged to match up to $20,000 of raised funds for the American Safe Climbing Association! The ASCA is a bare bones non profit organization of dedicated climbers who replace unsafe anchors and reduce the visual and environmental impacts of climbing. Over the years, they have placed over 11,000 bolts to date!

In 2012, here's a sample of where some of their bolts went:
 362 Titanium glue-ins placed in Thailand
 250 bolts in Yosemite Valley
 140 bolts on 20 different routes in Moab & Indian Creek
 50-100 bolts in Red Rocks, NV
 100+ bolts to small crags around California, Colorado, Arizona and North Carolina

On Wednesday, August 7th, at Planet Granite San Francisco, join us for a night of FUN, with a live auction of amazing items! Plus, CHRIS SHARMA will be our guest of honor!

Check back to this page often, as we'll be posting items that will be raffled off! Remember, for every $10 you donate, PG will match it and it will be come $20! Let's help raise money for the ASCA!!

Here is how you can help:
 RSVP Yes to the August 7 Event
 Bid on the ASCA Online Auctions - Ends in just a few days!! >> Check it out
 Make a donation between August 1-14 and have it matched by Planet Granite
 Tell a climbing friend about the three items above

Maybe, but that's awfully close to Vedauwoo sushifest, and 1200 miles away.. Though its a straight shot across on I-80....

Hey Chris,

I still don't see my stuff on the eBay site. Did they go out at the live auction or will they be posted later?
