Fall 2018 Competition

Competitions *No Registration Required

 

Blindfolded Speed Climbing Competition – September 4, 2018 (11am-8pm)

Test your climbing skills in the dark and see how long it takes you to get up our 30ft tower while harnessed into our auto belay. Each climber will be given the chance to practice the route prior to being blind folded. The top placers in both the men’s and women’s divisions will earn prizes from our sponsors.

Dyno Competition – October 8, 2018 (11am-8pm)

When climbing, there are instances in which the climber may be required to dynamically reach or even jump to get to the next hold. This competition will test each climber’s ability to complete different dynos on our bouldering structures. As the climber completes each one, the dynos will progressively get harder. Top placers in both the men’s and women’s divisions will earn prizes from our sponsors.

Traverse Competition – November 15, 2018 (11am-8pm) 

Rock climbing requires an equal balance of both strength and stamina. This competition is aimed to test each climber’s stamina ability by seeing how many laps around our bouldering structures they can do in 7-minutes. Climbers will be required to follow a designated route that will go around 2 of our three bouldering structures. The top placers in both the men’s and women’s divisions will earn prizes from our sponsors.
