The Black Hills Climbing Coalition is having a climb-a-thon at Custer State Park on May 20th to remember and celebrate the life of recently deceased Herb Conn. Their blog is here.
“Its a climb-a-thon at Custer State Park. Whatever that means to you, grab your gear and come out to climb at Custer State Park on May 20. As many of you know, the Great Herb Conn died and we thought that getting together to rock climb in the Outlets would be a fun and good way to honor his passing. Folks will probably start showing up around 9am, and be there until the Barn dance which starts at 7pm at the Custer YMCA. We have talked to Jan Conn and sometime in the early afternoon she will come out with her guitar and probably sing a few of her fun climbing songs. What more could you ask for?”
