Climb on Nepal Fundraiser
6:30pm-10:30pm Ticket: $10 pre-sale, $15 at door
In wake of the recent devastating earthquakes in Nepal, the New York climbing community has partnered with Wythe Hotel and charity organization Waves for Water to create an event to celebrate adventure and a climber’s relationship with the mountains, as a nod to the Himalayas, the highest mountain range in the world, and to provide much needed aid to the people of Nepal, with all proceeds from the event going to charity.
Live music by Home for Wayward Drummers at 9:30pm.
Silent Auction with all proceeds going directly to charity, will conclude at 10:30pm.
Tickets to the event are on sale through ClimbOnNepal.com for $10 pre-sale and
$15 at the door. Donating at the event is strongly encouraged.
This event is made possible thanks to an array of generous sponsors including
Patagonia, AFAR Magazine, Revo, The New Yorker, The Cliffs Climbing Gym,
Brooklyn Boulders, and more. Surprise raffle gifts, silent auctions, and local
beverages will be provided by sponsors.
As climbers, we will always have a connection to
Nepal. It is grounded in our history as a proving ground and playground for the legends of our sport. When Nepal is in need, we are compelled to showcase our love and support for the mountains by coming to the aid of the Nepali people. We created Climb on Nepal as a vehicle for charitable donation and to bring the worldwide climbing community together.
Some of the contributing artists include:
JIMMY CHIN is one of the most sought after and recognized adventure sports photographers and filmmakers in the world. Jimmy is an award-winning National Geographic photographer, sponsored climber and skier for the North Face, and is one of the few people to climb and ski Mount Everest from the summit.
COREY RICH, is one of the most recognized adventure and outdoor lifestyle visual storytellers. He has traveled the world on assignment for many of the best brands in the industry. His editorial work includes assignments for National Geographic Adventure, Outside, Sports Illustrated and The New York Times Magazine.
Many will recognize Corey’s photos capturing the wonderful Dawn Wall ascent by climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson.
COLIN HALEY, is one of the world’s leading alpine mountain climbers today,
well-known for his cutting-edge ascents in Patagonia, Alaska, and all over the
world. Colin is climbing ambassador sponsored by Patagonia, Petzl, and La Sportiva.
JOE FITSCHEN, a legend from the golden days of American rock-climbing, who along with Royal Robbins, Chuck Pratt, and Tom Frost, were the first team to scale the classic Nose on El Capitan in Yosemite Valley, California in a single, continuous push. This visionary ascent in 1960 broke the boundaries of the siege-style tactics used on mountains of that day. Prints from that trip will be available at the exhibit for silent auction.
