The WMCC Rendezvous, presented by Millet is our annual fundraiser to help build cohesive relationships with advocacy groups, state and local governments, landowners, and conservation groups and to keep climbing areas open and conserve the climbing environment in Western Massachusetts.

 

We'd like to give a huge shout to our presenting sponsor Millet (www.millet.fr/en/) and supporting sponsor Misty Mountain (www.mistymountain.com). With their support we are able to improve our event and ultimately put more resources to realizing our short and long term goals. The best way to show them your thanks is by visiting their website and taking a look at their products. If you like what you see, buy something. Promise you, it will feel good!
