Bishop Craggin Classic

The Bishop Craggin’ Classic is an American Alpine Club rock climbing event held annually in the Easter Sierra town of Bishop, California. It is part of the AAC’s Craggin Classic Serries, which brings climbers together at world-class climbing destinations in the United States.

The events gather the climbing community to celebrate, to learn and develop new skills, and to give back to the crag. The event was started a decade ago by local climbers looking to clean up the Buttermilks, a popular bouldering area, and afterwards drink some beers with friends.

The event has grown to feature films, climbing clinics, slideshows, music, games, gear, and good times–all in a massive celebration right in the heart of downtown Bishop. Attendees can also participate in stewardship projects, which take place both in the Volcanic Tablelands as well as the Buttermilks.
