I am beyond psyched for this. Can't wait!!! Especially pumped to see Core by Chuck Fryberger, and all the proceeds go to an awesome cause, the RRGCC.

Some additional sponsors that need mentioning:

National / International Sponsors
Wolverine Publishing, Whole Foods, & Millet

Local / Regional Sponsors
True North Inn, Philz

For those who haven't been to RRG in a while, Philz is a new campground and snack shop that is located on Bald Rock Rd before the Motherlode hill.

In addition to the donations from their guidebook sales, Wolverine recently donated several RRG guidebooks that were given to local EMS to improve their ability to respond to any climbing related incident.

The Footwork & Technique, Intermediate Sport, Intro to Trad, & Warrior's Way clinics are all full now and only one spot is left in the Multipitch Efficiency clinic. A few more spots are left in the Burl Like a Girl clinic w/ Audrey Sniezek.... For those of you who may not know about Audrey she is a member of the US Climbing Team and has a solid background in personal training and coaching climbing - http://www.audreysniezek.com/.../climbing_resume.htm

There is still plenty of room left in the Elite Climbing clinic with Nick Duttle. I met Nick this spring at New River Rendezvous and he is a great guy. As far as a climbing resume all I have to say is that he has climbed Esperanza. And beyond his climbing abilities Nick might be able to teach you a thing or two about perseverance - http://rockandice.com/...57-keeping-the-faith

There are also spots available in Shingo's Anchor Building Clinic. Think of this one as Trad 102. Now you can place a piece comfortably and are ready to travel - unfortunately not all places have bolted anchors at the top of their sport climbs. Learn great tips and tricks from a pro! http://www.sterlingrope.com/team/67/440

Don't forget to bring your retired ropes to Rocktoberfest to be recycled. Sterling will again be accepting them and in return giving you a ticket that will be entered into a raffle for a brand new rope!

I pre-registered but lost my registration email. What do I need to do for registration? Just show up Friday after 4:00 with ID?

Thanks

The people at registration should be able to figure it out off their list with your ID.

Also, just got the word that Keen is bringing a truckload of shoes again. They will be selling Menís Obsidian and Womenís RedRock shoes (retail $125) for $50 with all proceeds going to the RRGCC!

Sweet, thanks! I couldn't find that info on the web site...I'm probably just too dumb to find it.
