Mexico Gear Drive
In April, Sacramento Pipeworks foreman and former Mexico climbing champion, Andres Mueller headed south to Mexico city to help a youth climbing program. Thanks to the generous donations of a number of Touchstone members, Andres brought 5 ropes, 6 backpacks, 25 harnesses, 53 chalkbags, 94 pairs of shoes, a number of carabiners, 10 belay devices a headlamp, and a helmet.
The gear drive helped the kids, who have ample pysch, a lot of local climbing, but a lack of necessary equipment, get a chance to enjoy the great rock of Mexico and develop into rock climbers. Below are a number of pictures that Andres brought back from his trip.
Thanks again to all the members who generously offered their support and got these kids out on the rocks!
