We're proud to launch 24-Hours into the Black, a fundraiser to help kickstart AAC's Climber Grief Fund: a program to support grieving climbers in need. At the end of this month, climbers Madaleine Sorkin and Mary Harlan will attempt to link 3 major routes in the Black Canyon in 24 hours. Madaleine says the effort is "for the nourishment we can find in the void, in the Black, and for the fierce and gentle persistence to trust life enough to risk returning time and time again.” 

Learn more about the journey here, follow Madaleine and Mary and donate on their fundraiser page, and look for updates on AAC’s Facebook

We're hopeful that Madaleine and Mary's incredible efforts to come on these climbs will kick off a positive beginning for a fund dedicated to helping climbers through dark times.
