Sierra Single Pitchn' Event // Eastern Sierra

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!

Well the inaugural Campn' n Crimpn' event in Joshua Tree, National Park is officially over and what an amazing weekend we had! We chased shade all weekend long in the park and were rewarded with some fantastic memories. First outdoor climbs and rappels went down, gear and anchor clinics were facilitated and an overall fun time was had in the park and back at camp! We can't thank the Campn' n Crimpn' participants enough for coming out with us this weekend in Joshua Tree. It was a fantastic weekend and we look forward to the next CnC event in the future!
