In 2018, Madaleine Sorkin and Mary Harlan climbed a link-up in the Black Canyon to raise awareness for the Climbing Grief Fund.

“With the intention to make space for grief and our longing while in the Black Canyon wilderness, we will break from climbing during most of the night and descend to the 2000' to bottom of the canyon.
