Stacked house last night at @verticalhold for the Yosemite Slideshow presented by none other than @arcteryx athlete and Golden State Guiding Ambassador and Guide @cannonjtc! The climbing community came together for great stories, big wall talk and some insight into the last few years Jordan has spent in Yosemite Valley. Big thanks to everyone who came out to the event and supported not only Jordan, but the organizations we were raising funds for through our raffle, @joshuatreefriends and @yosemiteconservancy! Lastly, we need to thank the people and companies that made this all possible, @verticalhold, @maximropes, @scarpana, @saintarcherbrew, @officialacsd, @sandiegochapter_aac, @metoliusclimbing, @frictionlabs, and @yeti thank you for your continued support of our events and to @gregasaurus_flex for MC’ing the event and @samuelcrossley and @eliza_earle for the great photos! Looking forward to seeing everyone at our next slideshow!

Another amazing weekend with great people in a beautiful place! We wrapped up our Sierra Single Pitchn’ Event in the Eastern Sierra and I think it’s safe to say we’re still coming down from a big high! We spent 2 nights camping in beautiful Rock Creek Canyon and ventured out each day into the Eastern Sierra, sampling some fine rock climbing along the way. Day 1 was spent at Clark Canyon where we climbed large formations composed of volcanic rock followed by a dip in Rock Creek Lake to round out the day. Day 2 we ventured north into the Mammoth Lakes Basin area where we spent the day climbing at Horseshoe Slabs, nestled between Horseshoe Lake and beautiful pine trees of all shapes and sizes. The Sierra is a very special place to all of our Guides, it’s a privilege to be able to introduce people to a place so near and dear to our heart. Thanks to everyone who attended the first annual Sierra Single Pitchn’ Event, this is just the beginning of more fun outings to come on the Eastside! Also, big shout out to GSG Guide Greg Davis for facilitating the weekend and to GSG Guide Tyler Dandurand and GSG Apprentice Guide Sarah Barille for helping along the way. Awesome team we have, couldn't do it without you guys!
