La Sportiva’s Athletes Converge on Red Rocks Rendezvous

La Sportiva’s team of climbing and mountain running athletes will head out to Las Vegas, Nev. for a weekend of climbing, running and clinics at the fifth annual Red Rocks Rendezvous, March 28-30, 2008. La Sportiva is sponsoring a wide range of clinics from their elite climbing athletes, including Micah Dash, Tommy Caldwell, Beth Rodden, Matt Segal, Paul Stein, Dale Remsburg, and Mark Synnott.

Every climber has been in a situation where they bit off a little bit more than they could chew, and Mark Synnott will be hosting a clinic to help climbers get down to level ground safely from nearly any situation. Mark’s clinic, called The Fine Art of Bailing, will teach attendees about improvised rappel anchors and techniques to avoid leaving too much gear. Yosemite veteran, Micah Dash will be hosting a clinic on crack climbing & off-widths at Red Rock Rendezvous.

La Sportiva’s team of product testers will be at the Rendezvous with their demo fleet of rock shoes and mountain running footwear. This year, La Sportiva will be handing out 100 water bottles a day to anyone who test drives a new pair of La Sportiva rock or mountain running shoes.
