Pro Team athlete Jordan K was on hand at the RRG Rodeo and brought back some incredible shots from his time there.
“The RRG Rodeo hosted by the RRG Fixed Gear Ethics Initiative was a blast over labor day weekend. The stoke was high and so was the humidity. Having a GETLOST Performance Tee was excellent with how much you would be sweating mid route. After a day of a few onsights and redpoints and one crazy whipper we posted up for a few games of Rummy, some Ale 8’s, and the best pizza around while enjoying the rodeo (sorry no climbing pics as it was only two of us). Raffle tickets were selling off the hook and no wonder with the awesome grab bag of prizes from GETLOST, RAB, and Prana. Every ticket sold essentially equalled buying a stainless steel bolt to replace some old mank, so a bucket was slowly filled with bolts for every ticket purchased. The bucket was overflowing by the end of the night from the support of the incredible local climbing community. The RRG Fixed Gear Ethics Initiative was on hand with tons of rusted, worn, and busted old gear to educate climbers on what to look for when out climbing. Throughout the night the qualifier for the rodeo clip contest was held and yours truly made the final 5. I put up my best effort but managed 4th in the end after not my best showing in rodeo clipping. The bonfire and party raged on into the night and good times were had by all. In total $1,100 was raised or roughly 220 Bolts to be swapped for old gear and keep all climbers in the Red safe. Thanks again to Ian and the RRG Fixed Gear Ethics Initiative for having us jump on board and sponsor the event as well as join in on a great time.”
