Last year's meet was an amazing adventure. Yosemite Park closed one week before the meet started. 50 participants traveled to the Eastern Sierra where we climbed, camped, watched movies on the side of a van, and bonded over the fact that no matter what happens, climbers will still climb. Although we do not anticipate closure of Yosemite Vally, the show will go on no matter the circumstances. 

Deadline for International applications is 15 June 2014
