Thursday - We are very excited to have one half of the Wideboyz, Pete Whittaker, sharing his stories, from small gritstone adventures to soloing the big walls of Yosemite. Episodes of toilets, thirst, falls and failures are all part of the game when trying to succeed on big granite cliffs on your own!

Our kind friends at Entre-Prises will be putting on a FREE BBQ and BEER for delegates during Thursday evening of the conference. So grab yourself a burger and beer to sit down and listen to stories from Pete.
