Sessions 1 & 2: USAC Local Competition
Classic Redpoint Format comp. You’ll have 3 hours to climb any routes of your choosing with your top 3 scores recorded. Volunteer belayers will be at each rope. Some lead routes will be available for A, B, & Jr. categories. Speed Climbing will be run continuously during Sessions 1 and 2. Climbers may attempt their speed runs at any time during their registered session.

Session 3: Community Climbing Social
PRIZES! Join us for our wildly popular community climbing session where everyone walks out with a prize! Climbers of all levels, including beginners, are welcome. Ever wonder what routes you’d try if you didn’t know what the grades were? Come climb over 45 ungraded routes…you might surprise yourself! Also included in the fun are Speed Climbing and the After Party. Bring your climbing partner and belay each other, or use one of our staff belayers who will be floating around belaying, all night. Point totals will be recorded and prizes awarded for all levels. Don’t want to keep score? Sign up for the Funzies category and just climb for the fun of it!
