Rockies Region Live Your Dream Grant Winners Announced for 2012

Posted on: July 12th, 2012 by Rockies Region

Congratulations to our Rockies Region Live Your Dream Grant Winners! The five grant winning teams from the Rockies Region plan trips to Africa, British Columbia, Patagonia, and Italy with goals of tackling difficult alpine rock climbs and hard Euro sport-climbs.

Rockies Regional Coordinator Jenn Flemming said, “This award was incredibly fulfilling to deliberate over, and I look forward to next year’s round of applications. I encourage folks out there to tell their friends—especially those with rock climbing and bouldering dreams—and I look forward to reviewing even more applications next year!”

We’ll be getting their trip reports—and posting them on americanalpineclub.org—when they get back from their expeditions, but check out the press release, and start dreaming for your own trips now!

The purpose of the Rockies Region “Live Your Dream” Grant is to fund individuals or small teams in pursuit of their personal climbing dreams. The emphasis of the grant is on projects that have significant positive impact on grantees’ progressions as climbers, as opposed to cutting-edge or exploratory objectives. We seek to support climbers from a range of ages and experience levels, as well as a range of climbing disciplines (sport climbing, bouldering, traditional rock climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering, etc.). Climbers from Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Southern Idaho are eligible for the Rockies Region grant.
