Climbing is far more than just a sweaty, chalky, finger-shredding sport – it’s a lifestyle. And anyone who loves climbing can attest that this sweltering segment of summertime isn’t exactly the prime season for dedicating yourself to the sport. Crags are rampant with biting insects and melt-your-face-off heat, rock gyms become ghost towns as folks flee towards air conditioned pursuits, and all to often, climbers give-up on their training efforts in favor of lazy afternoons spent curled up on the couch with the latest videos from DeadPoint Mag.
So let’s get the climbing hype happenin’ during this scorching month of July
with The Morning Fresh’s first giveaway!
Your callouses have been getting way too soft lately, and let’s face it – you could use a little motivation to get off the sofa and get back to crushin’ rock (or plastic).
From now until July 15th, you can enter to win one of two chalk buckets, each filled with some little climbing goodies – plus, one lucky winner will win a $25 gift certificate to the rock gym of their choice.
This giveaway isn’t just for climbers – this is the perfect opportunity for folks interesting in trying the sport. A $25 gift certificate will like cover all, if not most, of the cost of an introductory lesson or day pass at your local rock gym. Armed with a sweet new chalk bucket, you’ll be a route sending pro in no time.
*Note: Already have a gym membership, and already have a closet stocked with every piece of gear your shop sells? The winner may choose to donate their $25 winnings to the climbing organziation/charity of their choice. (The Southeastern Climbers Coalition and the Access Fund are two very worthy causes!)
How do you enter?
You’ll earn points towards the ‘raffle’ by leaving a comment on this post telling me why you would love to win, following The Morning Fresh on Facebook and Twitter, subscribing to the blog via email, and more. Every entry gives you a better chance at winning. Good luck!
PS: A big thank-you to our friends at Stonelick who generously donated a chalk bucket and stickers for the giveaway when I ordered my sweet new crash pad. You guys rock! Check out Stonelick’s Facebook page, and give ’em a like – they’re some truly fantastic people who are equally as stoked on climbing as I am. (And they make sweet, sweet crash pads.)
