TITLE SPONSOR 2018
AUTHENTIC MOUNTAIN CULTURE
Without the desert, one would not think to build pyramids. Without the ocean, one would not build ships to cross them. Without the mountains, one would not build the tools needed to climb them; as much to see the view from the top as to explore within ourselves. Great ideas do not simply appear. They are forged, hammered and shaped like finely crafted metal by the hands of experience, inspiration and ingenuity.
CAMP is the Title Sponsor of the Salt Lake Climbing Festival (SLCF). This year's festival would not have been possible without them. Make sure to swing by their booth at the vendor village to learn more about the equipment they offer.

Rab Carrington built his company on two things: A deep understanding of what climbers and mountaineers need, and a commitment to practical gear that works.

Those same qualities of innovation, integrity and function have endured, remaining at the heart of the Rab® brand today.
