Kismet Rock Foundation

Every year I try to volunteer a day to help out with the Kistmet Rock Foundation.

“KRF enhances the physical, intellectual and emotional development of well-functioning but economically disadvantaged children by providing access to the immense value of a comprehensive and multi-dimensional education in technical rock climbing.”

That’s a mouthful huh? Bottom line, they get kids climbing that otherwise would not have had the opportunity. That, I can support! I had the pleasure of taking Drew, one of their seasoned kids, climbing on a number of fun routes on Cathedral Ledge. Here are some of the shots from the day, along with some pics of other Kismet kids I was able to get from nearby climbs.
