Pinnacles National Monumentis proud to celebrate the legacy of local climbing with the Rockpile Rendezvous. The event will be heldJune 7, 2008, from10amto3pm, on the West Side of Pinnacles. As part of the monument’s yearlong Centennial Celebration, Pinnacles is striving to engage communities in hopes of strengthening local involvement that has been a cornerstone of Pinnacles well before its creation 100 years ago.
The Rockpile Rendezvous will celebrate the legacy of conservation and the stewardship ethic that climbers have practiced at Pinnacles over the last 70 years. Pinnacles offers a variety of recreational and educational opportunities, and it is our goal to responsibly share these resources with the surrounding communities. Friends of Pinnacles, a local organization promoting responsible climbing practices, will be one of many participants. This event will be a great chance for climbers to connect with each other and for non-climbers to immerse themselves in the climbing culture at Pinnacles.
