Spend Earth Day morning starting at 8 a.m. April 22 cleaning up your favorite Spokane area climbing crag (Mini, Cliff, Mirabeau, Dishman, or Deep Creek), followed by some climbing after the work is wrapped up. Bring gloves, work clothes, and water for the clean-up and your climbing gear for some fun. Then head down to the Rock The Earth after party at the Washington Crack Company Building downtown Spokane for a climbing presentation, live music by Marshall Mclean, and good food and drink. Everyone is welcome at the after-party, even if you can’t make it to the clean-up. Thank the Bower Climbing Coalition, a Spokane non-profit that repairs and replaces hardware at local climbing areas, for putting this all on. Learn more at Bowerclimbingcoalition.com. //
