Castlewood Canyon Competition and Clean-Up

From the Rock:

Join us this Saturday, July 18 for some great bouldering and a great cause.
The canyon needs your help this year. All the rain has washed out trails and left them in need of maintenance. So you don't have to compete to be part of the event.

The event is being organized by The Rock in Monument. The Access Fund and Mountain Chalet are helping sponsor the event so we will have giveaways and prizes for both competitors and cleaner-uppers.

Location: Castlewood Canyon State Park (See below for directions)Cost: $25 for competition, clean-up: free Schedule:9 AM Competition and Clean-up registration9:15 AM Clean-up starts 10 AM Competition starts2ish PM Competition ends Directions/parkingWe are meeting at the WEST entrance - NOT the main entrance.Take Exit 182, Wilcox St. Turn right on Wilcox St, turn left on 5th St, continue onto CO 86. Take a right on Castlewood Canyon Road. Go through the Ranger's Station and follow the road as it changes to dirt and goes past the small homestead house. Look for a large parking lot called the "Horse Trailer lot". The registration table will be there.

You DO NOT have to pay the car usage fee. Castlewood is waiving the fee in exchange for the clean-up services
