THE STORY SWAP 

Each year we put out the call for climbers from Philly to come share a 5 to 10 minute story of their adventures. We assemble a panel of 6 to 8 presenters, wrangle some brewskies, and laugh and cheer on our friends as they share that one great story they love to tell over and over. 

Date: Thursday September 28th

Location: PhilaMoca (Philadelphia Mausoleum of Contemporary Art) 531 N 12th Street

Time: Doors @ 6:30pm Show 7pm-9pm
