Jailhouse Fundraiser

We’re excited to announce we exceeded our goal!  In just one night, we raised nearly $1500 for the Jailhouse Gear Fund!

With Planet Granite’s $1000 match, almost $2500 was donated to purchase the much needed gear to replace the fixed gear at Jailhouse.

Special thanks to James “Peaches” Lucas, best known for living the dirtbag climber’s dream, for hosting a cool slideshow for our event.  He detailed the history of Jailhouse and his vast collection of photos from the crag throughout the years.

Thank you again to everyone who donated!  Our members make Planet Granite’s $1 per Member per Month a successful program in which we’re able to donate money to protect and preserve crags like Jailhouse.  Read more about PG Gives Back here.
