Craggin Classic in the New River Gorge, WV Sept.14-16

Posted on: September 1st, 2012 by lhummel

Join us for a weekend of climbing, clinics, great food, great people, slide show with Pat Goodman, dance party, and auction.

We will kick things off Friday morning with a rafting trip down the Gauley River with Cantrell’s Ultimate Rafting Co., and then wind down to a FREE “Pro Rappel Techniques” course with Danny McCraken, of the Appalachian Mountain Institute.  Finally we will kick back to some good music, good beer, and painstakingly slow roasted pig.  This will all go down at the AAC Campground.

Saturday is filled with breakfast and coffee, followed by awesome Climbing Clinics, and then winds down to more good food, good beer, and good music at Cantrell’s.  Pat Goodman will be giving a slide show on sport climbing in India and Trad Climbing in Pakistan, followed by an auction.  Then it will be Dance Party Time with a live DJ pumping some House music!

Sunday will be a day to recoop, turn down the engines, and help volunteer at the AAC Campground to help it progress, followed by a sandwich from the Secret Sandwich Society.

Camping is available and FREE at the AAC Campground.  Cantrell’s also has camping and nice cabins and bungalow’s with “climber rates” call Cantrell’s to book under AAC Craggin Classic Event: 304-574-2500
