If you are interested please contact me and I can add you to the google drive doc to begin the brainstorming process. So far the cost for the dome is still coming in around 20000 USD which I think is doable with enough people and some fundraising.
Attached is a very simple sketchup I made to get dimensions for crash pads. Basically it is a giant roof with two slap walls and an arete. 15 feet at the highest point.
I have been to burning man in 2017 and 2018. I decided I did not want to return until I was able to provide a gift that was close to my heart, to share with the community.
Rock climbing has been, for me and a lot of people, a second home where we can connect with nature and ourselves. I think anyone who rock climbs can agree that there is something about the simple nature of the sport that resonates with the fundamental aspect of what it is to be alive.
Since I first went to Burning man, I always thought it would be amazing to be able to connect with rock climbers from around the world and to share this sport with people who have never tried it before. I would love to be able to build a camp, nestled below a plywood crag, where I could make this a reality.
This year I am in a financially and emotionally opportune time to dedicate some serious effort towards making this a reality. I have never tried an undertaking of this caliber, though. I would need a lot of help from people with experience navigating the Blackrock city landscape, structural engineers, route setters, builders, and volunteers to run the camp. I would need help financially through donations.
If reading this has interested you, and you would like to connect and talk about the possibility of making this happen, please reach out to me! You can also PM me on IG at adam.n.shadow and if we get more people involved we can find a more efficient method of communication.
