Climbing prepares us for these times...
Climb On is a screening of short, climbing inspired films OUTSIDE in Mission Plaza in downtown San Luis Obispo.
The films are climbing inspired by a short film, Climbing out of Disaster (check it out online). The community of climbers in San Juan sprang into action when Hurricane Maria hit, bouldering buildings to bring people supplies, to pull their things out, and to climb trees to clear roads for emergency vehicles. Now they are building the first climbing gym in Puerto Rico and it's a sign of resilience, hope, and rebuild in their community.
With this screening, we are raising money for their climbing gym, El Bloque.
There will be climbing guests from Puerto Rico and other places, with conversations about getting outside, celebrating climbing culture, and discussions on climate change.
