07 Nov The Fête du Spit, an event for the climbing community
The Fête du Spit is an event organised by the Greenspits association, by and for climbers. It is held annually and a different location is chosen each year. The fourth edition was held at the foot of the Mollans-sur-Ouvèze sector, in the Rhône-Alpes region (France), between 27 and 29 September.
Fixe has collaborated with Greenspits for the first time and was present at the Fête du Spit as one of the sponsoring brands.
Attendees at the event, in addition to climbing, have been able to participate in many workshops, covering topics such as maintenance of routes, climbing using self-protection, stretching, etc. Fixe took centre stage in two of the workshops. The first of these was the workshop on knots, in which the brand’s ropes were used, to teach all the students different knots and their applications. The second was the one on equipment, where Fixe equipment was used to explain which tools are necessary when equipping a climbing route and which is the most suitable material depending on the rock and other conditions.
Fixe has a clear commitment to attending this type of event, which spread the climbing culture based on sustainability and good practices on the rock. We hope for many more Fête du Spit events!
