Overview

Climb as much as you can on the longest days of the year. Arrive Friday and pitch your tent in the AAC Campground. Get a good night sleep because the annual pitch-a-thon starts at dawn on Sat. The Pitch-a-thon is a unorthodox climbing competition that requires cleverness and careful planning but only modest technical skills. Prizes will be awarded in many categories. Recharge with a late dinner and sleep in on Sunday. Do what you want on Sunday (climb, hike, bike, sleep, swim, shop).
