Nat'l Public Lands Day Weekend at Shelf Road: Day #1
RMFI is partnering with the Bureau of Land Management, Royal Gorge Field Office to improve belay platforms at the Mammoth area, Ejection Wall, and Gym Arete, as well as trail tread maintenance at the Gym and New Gym crags. This project will involve plenty of rock moving, a bit of technical rock feature construction, and a lot of fun, strenuous, and rewarding work!
*Times Slots: To ensure group sizes of 10 or less, we will be hosting volunteers at staggered start times. You will be assigned a time slot after you register! The three time slots available are 8 am to 2:30 pm, 8:15 am to 2:45 pm, and 8:30 to 3 pm.*

Climbing & Leave No Trace Workshop:
After the workday, we invite you full send on the bomber climbing routes around Shelf! Please bring your own equipment. This is not provided or guided by RMFI.
At 6 pm, we will be hosting an optional Leave No Trace workshop accompanied by a cold beer! Through this training, you'll learn more about stewardship practices through the 7 principles of Leave No Trace. We are only allowing a group of 8 volunteers to participate in this workshop. Please identify in your registration if you are interested in attending the workshop!
Due to the COVID-19 health crisis, we will not be providing camping spots to volunteers this year. If you would like to camp, please make your own arrangements.
And due to the health crisis, please note that this volunteer workday is subject to change or cancellation to protect the health and safety of our volunteers and our staff.
