Gunnison Climbing Event to Benefit Local Climbing Team and The American Foundation for Children with AIDS


The April 24th USA Climbing Sanctioned Event Will Attract Climbers from Across the West. The Day Long Event Will Test Climbers’ Levels of Fitness and Skill.

Harrisburg, PA, March 31, 2010 --(PR.com)-- The Gunnison Valley Peaceful Warriors are excited to announce its next climbing competition to be held on April 24, 2010. The fourth annual Gunny Sports Climbing Series Local is open to competitors of all age levels and will be comprised of indoor climbing routes found at both the Gunnison Community and Western State College Fitness Centers.

“The Gunny Sports Climbing Series Local is expected to attract some of the most promising young climbers from across Colorado and New Mexico” states Alec Solimeo, Event Organizer. “Climbing teams from private gyms from around the region will be competing. For those interested in the future of competitive climbing in our region, this is a ‘must attend’ event.”

The Gunny Sports Climbing Series Local is a difficulty-oriented, timed contest that presents four separate routes that entrants must climb. Contestants are not given the opportunity to see the problems in advance, which should offer a fun yet challenging set of climbing problems. Contestants will alternate between periods of climbing and rest to ensure everyone is fairly matched.

This year proceeds of the event will be shared by two worthy groups: The Gunnison Valley Peaceful Warriors and Climb Up So Kids Can Grow Up. The Gunnison Valley Peaceful Warriors is a youth climbing team borne from the The Gunnison Valley Climbing Experience, a publicly funded climbing program whose mission is to expose young people to the world of climbing. Climb Up So Kids Can Grow Up is a climbing-focused charity event created by the American Foundation for Children with AIDS (AFCA), which benefits African children with AIDS.

“We’re very excited to be working with the Gunnison Valley Climbing Experience and Alec Solimeo again this year” states AFCA Director Tanya Weaver. “We’ve found that the climbing community is incredibly generous in helping those in need. We’re grateful for the support of GVCE and The Peaceful Warriors.”
