Show to help local climber

A portion of the proceeds from Friday’s Zap Mama concert in Buckley Park will be donated to help Rosa Malloy-Post with her ongoing expenses.
The local climber, who works at Backcountry Experience and Open Sky Wilderness Therapy, was partially paralyzed in a May 4 fall while climbing near Indian Creek, Utah. Concert promoter Tami Graham said she was moved by a Durango Telegraph article detailing Malloy-Post’s ordeal.
“I don’t know if I’d met her, but I knew many members of Open Sky and heard her name through those connections,” Graham said. “It just really struck a chord for me when I heard about the accident, she being so active and relatively young.”
Malloy-Post, who is confined to a wheelchair, will attend Friday’s concert. She said insurance has covered many of her medical expenses since the accident, but her time not working has created a financial hardship.
“I was really surprised that someone I didn’t really even know was willing to put so much time and energy into helping,” Malloy-Post said. “It’s typical of how strong Durango is, people sticking together – it’s pretty sweet. I just feel really grateful for the community, and I never want to leave Durango.”
