NIC's Outdoor Pursuits encourages climbing community to give back
North Idaho College’s Outdoor Pursuits is sponsoring a presentation by speed rock climber Hans Florine in conjunction with Adopt-A-Crag activities.
Florine will present at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 8 in the Lake Coeur d’Alene Room of NIC’s Edminster Student Union Building.
Florine is an international rock climbing champion, a three-time ESPN X-Games champion and an eight-time national champion. He holds numerous speed climbing records in Yosemite National Park as well as worldwide.
The event is being held in conjunction with Adopt-A-Crag climbing crag cleanup activities. Volunteers are encouraged to participate in trail maintenance, making the trails more user-friendly and preserving the natural area, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9 at Q’emiln Riverside Park in Post Falls. Volunteers will also post signs to direct climbers to various climbing areas and clean up graffiti on the rocks.
This event is part of Adopt-A-Crag Day, a nationwide day of improving, cleaning and celebrating local crags through volunteerism. Adopt-A-Crag is organized by the Access Fund, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving the climbing environment.
Both events are free and open to the community.
