We are also planning to host a Sindicato Granitica banquet on Labor Day at a location to be determined. Come and meet the climbers who have made the amazing Arizona climbing scene what it is today.
Tickets for the two day Festival will be available for $25 plus tax through the Flagstaff Climbing Center. Once they are set up for ticket sales to begin I will announce it on this thread so please don't contact them before that time. seating is limited so make sure to buy your tickets ahead of the event.
