Point Dume – Adopt a Crag

Point Dume – Adopt a Crag

 

This past Monday, Sender One sponsored an Adopt a Crag event with Access Fund to help maintain and clean trails in Point Dume! Point Dume is a famous climbing and hiking area on the coast of Malibu that sheds an incredible view encompassing the north Malibu Coast, Santa Monica Mountains, Catalina Island and Santa Monica Bay. The iconic wall of rock that rests right on Pirate's Cove Beach has been an iconic place for climbers for decades.

Volunteers and Sender One employees came out to help keep this preserve in the condition that it deserves. We were directed by the State Park representatives to work on mitigating the eroded social trails that have been developing over years, because it interferes with the native animals and plants that reside there. To do that, we groomed the existing trails and used the trimmings to cover the social trails to block access so that vegetation will grow over time. With that task done, we moved onto removing the weeds that began to grow, picked up trash, and cleared the summit of loose rock that could potentially fall on people below.

One of Sender One’s proud initiatives is a program called Care for the Crag. As climbers we like to seek national parks, campsites, deserts, mountains, etc., to send out projects and create memories. As you go out more, you’ll notice pieces of trash lying around the campgrounds, illegal trails that have been paved, even graffiti that destroys the landscape. Please help maintain the beauty and stability of these crags to help climbers visit these locations in the future!

Check out what we did to help out with restoring Point Dume's trails and crags!

Chalk is in the Air: Event Recap

Chalk is in the Air: Event Recap

On Saturday, we celebrated our very FIRST Adidas sponsored event: the adidas Ticket to Rockstars! We were stoked to see hundreds of excited and tenacious climbers at Sender One LAX to face numerous bouldering challenges while rocking out to awesome music! 

We started the day off with our youth bouldering jam, and were met by a sea of green adidas shirts and upbeat attitudes. We were blown away by all of the energy and excitement that these little (and crazy strong!) senders brought to the competition and we want to give a very special THANK YOU to all parents for spending the day and bringing their kids to enjoy their very own Ticket to Rockstars event! It’s amazing to see so many supportive and proud parents with a huge smile on their face as their kids test their skills on new routes and share their excitement with new people! These kid crushers are the future of rock climbing, so it’s safe to say: we are in good hands!

As the Open Jam began, we were met with an even bigger sea of red adidas shirts! Climbers of all levels gave it their all while continuing to rock out to great music.  No matter if you are an experienced climber or a beginner, our gym and competitions are always going to cater to everyone. Even if you didn’t feel like climbing, there was a relaxing lounge area filled with bean bags, corn hole, and a selfie booth with fun props!
