Ozone Guide Release and Climber Benefit

On Wednesday, October 1st, from 6:30 to 9:00 pm at the Lucky Labrador Beer Hall in NW Portland, there will be a fundraiser for climber Kevin Rauch, who was diagnosed with ALS, and his family. A hot-off-the-presses guide book to a local climbing area called Ozone, where Kevin set many of the routes, will be sold. This benefit is being arranged by Kevin's friends and it's pretty impressive how they've not only written a guidebook, but put together a silent auction full of great stuff that anyone, not just climbers, would want.

You can find out more info, including directions, at this blog they put together for the event. Here's a link to a newspaper article on the event, too.

If you're from the Portland area, I hope you'll stop by the Lucky Lab in NW PDX on Wednesday. It's a great cause and the guide book looks fantastic. See you there!
