May 3: Chris Summit – Sonoma County First Ascent Bouldering Location: Epicenter, 3125 Coffey Lane, Santa Rosa Time & Date: Tuesday, May 3, 2022 @ 7:30 PM (Social hour and free beer for members at 6:30) Chris Summit has undoubtedly put up more bouldering first ascents in Sonoma County than anyone. His psyche for finding new boulders and nabbing first ascents is contagious and has spawned several new eras of boulder hunting and development from many strong local climbers. Chris will most likely give up a few “Topo Secrets” and will highlight several climbers that are throwing down in Sonoma County and beyond.

“To Be Rescheduled” May 3: Jim Thornburg – The Choss Revolution

April 13, 2022

May 3: Jim Thornburg – The Choss Revolution Location: Epicenter, 3125 Coffey Lane, Santa Rosa Time & Date: Tuesday, May 3, 2022 @ 7:30 PM (Social hour and free beer for members at 6:30) We will re-schedule Jim Thornburg for another month. Jim Thornburg is a well known climbing photographer and Bay Area climbing guidebook author who is also an active route developer. There has been nothing short of a revolution in the Bay Area of many dedicated route developers who are finding and developing new crags, primarily in the north bay area. Why have these crags been overlooked by past generation? Well, the answer is most likely that these crags were initially chossy and very scrappy. But with lots of love and cleaning, these newer crags are enticing climbers old and new to search out these new areas. We are lucky to have Jim documenting these areas and providing exceptional guidebooks for these areas. Jim will share his involvement with this surge of new development, his newest Bay Area guidebooks along with stunning photos.
