What does the ticket pay for?
Our main goal is organizing a festival that supports the community from all levels. This means creating opportunities
for current leaders in the outdoor industry to flex their skills! Our prices for the festival were based on an estimate
to hire women and men in our community and local businesses from the Alabama and Atlanta area to come and share their
skills with the community. Funds will also be used to support next year’s festival and future events supporting
inclusive climbing events.
Beyond supporting an amazing community of climbers, guides, artists, and craftsman, you will also have access to
camping, an array of workshops, swag bags, panel talks and speakers, and a weekend full of community!
