BYOB+

 We are excited to announce our 9th annual BYOB fundraiser with some new twists! Like everyone, we have had to adjust to 2020. Instead of our usual one night extravaganza, we have extended BYOB to four days of events, clinics, and prizes! This year’s event will extend from October 29th – November 1st and we’ve got it packed with fun! 

As you might be aware, BYOB is the SCC’s largest fundraising event. This year we’re raising the bar: our goal is to raise $20,000 to send our FINAL check to the Access Fund to pay off Denny Cove! So come join the fun while raising money to protect climbing areas we all know and love!

Below you will find the list of events and details on how to get involved.
