Chris and the Sender One team will answer questions about the inception and design of Southern California’s most eagerly anticipated rock climbing gym. In addition, Chris will present his latest climbing slideshow and talk about how he keeps grounded while putting up first ascents of some of the world's hardest lines.
The event will take place at the Gear Co-op in Costa Mesa from 5pm—10pm. Around 1,000 people are expected to attend for a poster signing, slideshow, and virtual walkthrough of the new facility.
There will also be a free raffle with tons of great prizes (including a 1-year membership to Sender One), slacklining, bouldering, and vendors from some of the finest rock climbing and outdoor brands displaying the latest and greatest gear, as well as top rated food trucks.
All proceeds of the event will benefit the Sharmafund, an organization dedicated to giving underprivileged kids the enriching experience of outdoor rock climbing.
