To benefit Thailand rock climbing communities impacted by the recent tsunami, the first-ever 24 Hours of Climbing fundraiser is set for April 22-23, at the Vertical World climbing gym in Redmond, Wash.
Organizers are looking for Seattle-area participants as well as national sponsors.
Even cooler ... they're looking for other climbing organizations throughout the country that want to run a similar event at the same time.
If you want to know why Thai rock climbing is such a big deal, grab the March issue of "OUTSIDE" and turn to page 99.
