Shine Your Light: A Headlamp Climbing Benefit to Support Pulse Orlando & The New River Gorge Flood Victims

A special after-business hours Headlamp Climbing Event hosted by volunteers from Sportrock and the Capital Climbers LGBT rock climbing group to raise funds for victims of recent tragedies in June that affect our New River Gorge climbing community and the LGBT community. These tragedies include the mass shooting at Pulse Orlando and the New River Gorge Flood. Medical costs, funeral costs, and property loss for victims and families last many years after the news stories fade from the media and we aim to lessen the burden on all those affected by hosting this special benefit.

This event is for everyone, no matter your skill level! We will have volunteer belayers on hand to get you climbing or if you want to learn the skills for yourself, join us for a special Basic Skills class at 7 pm – tickets available below for $30 per person and include entrance into the main event.

100% percent of funds raised from the discounted fee of $15 per person, sales of volunteer baked goods and special items such as head lamps, and fees for the basic skills class for beginners prior to the event will go to a charity organizations that will help the victims.
