This is the second season for the Climb, the venue that RHEC fest is being held at. Ben Lamb, the owner, “hopes that RHEC fest entices Bonnaroo and other festival attendees--to spend less and enjoy what the local area has to offer.” The Climb is routinely a rock quarry open to the public for fishing, zip lining, four wheeler riding, swimming, kayaking, and primitive camping. This weekend, it will be the home for over 500 music lovers who are eager to float in the water, camp, and hang out with their friends while watching their favorite bands play.
