RENO — The Cal-Neva Extreme Rock Crawling competition will start the 2012 crawling series with Round 1 at the Giant’s Throne, Exit 28 just outside Reno Saturday and Sunday. Presented by Yukon Gear & Axle, Cal-Neva Extreme is a four-round, natural-terrain competitive rock crawling series that delivers an action-packed weekend with more than 120 courses run each day, all open to the public.
Cal-Neva hosts several rock biting teams, coming from as far away as Canada and across the United States and features national unlimited class-top contenders.
