Pinnacles National Monument Hosts Rockpile Rendezvous

The Rockpile Rendezvous is Less Than a Month Away - June 7th
If you haven't heard (too busy climbing) the Park is celebrating it's 100th Anniversary! As part of that achievement they are sponsoring the Rockpile Rendezvous - a gathering of climbers in celebration of climbing at the Park.
FOP will be there along with dozens of other rock climbing related groups from across the state. Don't miss it! FOP will be sending reminders as the event gets closer.
The following is a recent posting from the Park Service:
Pinnacles National Monument is proud to celebrate the legacy of local climbing with the Rockpile Rendezvous. The event will be held June 7, 2008, from 10am to 3pm, on the West Side of Pinnacles. As part of the monumentís yearlong Centennial Celebration, Pinnacles is striving to engage communities in hopes of strengthening local involvement that has been a cornerstone of Pinnacles well before its creation 100 years ago.
The Rockpile Rendezvous will celebrate the legacy of conservation and the stewardship ethic that climbers have practiced at Pinnacles over the last 70 years. Pinnacles offers a variety of recreational and educational opportunities, and it is our goal to responsibly share these resources with the surrounding communities. Friends of Pinnacles, a local organization promoting responsible climbing practices, will be one of many participants. This event will be a great chance for climbers to connect with each other and for non-climbers to immerse themselves in the climbing culture at Pinnacles. For additional information please contact:
