Are you slacking on the job due to daydreams about awesome sends? Do you lose sleep rehearsing the beta of your newest project? It is definitely Rifleitis. Reduce the symptoms volunteering at the upcoming Rendez-Spew and giving back to the canyon.

This year we will need your help with replacing old hardware, removing trash, rebuilding trails and belay stances. Work crews will gather in the morning (10AM) at the Wicked Cave parking lot. Bring gloves, tools (shovel, pick-axe, loper) and your fresh muscles.

Brush off the holds on at least one route! Any bit helps: one hour, four hours, the whole day.

Afterward, per our tradition join the coalition for beer and wine tasting, food, bonfire, and music, fundraising silent auction and raffle.
