AAC Craggin' Classic on September 17-20

The AAC's Craggin' Classic Series is a premier gathering of the tribe celebrating our traditions, culture, and craft. The components of the Craggin' Classic Series include community fellowship, competency and education, stewardship of our resources, and fundraising for critical programs such as the AAC's Live Your Dream Grant. Our aim is to gather the tribe in iconic climbing destinations nationwide and deliver on these components. Each weekend-long celebration is made possible through the partnership and leadership of our local businesses, volunteers, local climber coalitions, and industry partners.

Working with local guides and professional athletes, the Craggin' Classic Series is fast becoming the nation's premier resource for technical clinics on a wide range of topics for climbers at every level. The clinics are designed to deliver something far beyond what most climbers are able to learn in a gym. Expect to find clinics focused on Alpinism & Mountaineering, Trad/Multi-Pitch Climbing, and Physical Conditioning & Technique. A plethora of safety response skills and certifications are also available at most events.

We support healthy climbing landscapes; it's part of the AAC mission. Working with local climbing organizations and land managers, each event involves a stewardship component where climbers can put some of our brawn and brains into efforts aimed at conservation, sustainability and access.

Gathering together with a purpose is the heart and soul of our club. We share ideas, pass along knowledge, help improve the landscapes, and we care. Our social events celebrate our past, our recent achievements, and our future. We provide the best gear sales and games and even raise substantial dollars to benefit climbing grants and conservation projects. When we gather, we make a difference.
