New River Gorge Craggin' Classic

  • AAC New River Gorge Campground 97 Pudds Rd. Lansing, WV 25862 (map)

Join the American Alpine Club and CAMP USA in Fayetteville, West Virginia on September 20-22 for the 8th Annual Craggin' Classic in the New River Gorge!

This 3-day grassroots climbing festival celebrates the climbers and climbing of the Southeast... and we're pulling out all the stops. The weekend features climbing clinics taught by pro athletes and guides, stewardship and conservation efforts, gear demos, food, films, music, free beer and whiskey (21+), games, free swag, bonfires, raffles, silent auctions, and of course the infamous Glowstick Dance Party!

The festivities will take place at the AAC's campground with clinics taught at nearby crags in the Gorge. In order to cut down on over crowding (and protect the crag) we've limited the number of tickets and camping sites available for purchase, so act fast.

World class climbing combined with Southern hospitality, live music, pig roast, and an after-party that will have you howling at the moon.

**Registration opens July 23. Information and prices are subject to change until then.
