At the end of last month, I had the opportunity to attend the famous New River Rendezvous, now in its 9th edition. It is both a climbing festival and a fundraiser for the NRAC (New River Alliance of Climbers) and featured a lot of awesome events (including the legendary dessertapalooza, sugar overdose guaranteed) but also some of the best climbing on the East Coast of the US and of course, a bunch of great people. It was a good opportunity for me to see some of my friends from the AAC International Meet, two years ago in Indian Creek, and also to meet a lot of new people (including Chris Sharma, climbing super star and all around nice guy).
I didn’t climb very well, it rained a fair bit – though apparently not too much by local standards – and I was jetlagged the whole weekend, but still had an awesome time! I also taught a one day climbing photography clinic which was very successful, so expect to see more of those in the future.
There is a gallery of images from the event, but here are some personal favorites:
