n an effort to grow participation among individuals in climbing while building community of everyone in the gym, we are hosting a new format of climbing event to celebrate our 29th anniversary.

 Where competition once took precedent, we are looking to socialize competition so climbers of all ages and abilities to test themselves in the gym and win some great prizes. As such, prizes will not be given out based on how you compete against others, but how you compete based on your own ability on ropes and boulders.

Climbing has always been an evolution of your personal growth.  It never gets easier, from the first time you climbed a 5.6, to the climbers pushing to new limits of 5.16

This competition format is about challenging your self and your own ability, to gain points within an allotted time.  
Every 10 points a person attains, they will receive another raffle ricket.  At the end of the competition, we will have a massive raffle with over $2500 in prizes from our birthday sponsors.  
All participants in the competition will start with one raffle ticket for the cost of entry.
