The Gripfest has risen from the ashes and kicks off our first competition in our bouldering series. It will be a monthly gathering of the Southwest’s climbing community to celebrate and strengthen our climbing community. We strive to grow our climbing gym and community by providing a spectacular event. The competition will start with a USA Climbing youth local competition in the morning and afternoon, followed by our citizen comp that will lead into an onsight final for our top 6 open male and female competitors.

The citizen competition at the grip fest will consist of a series of bouldering competitions each month starting September 29th until January Finals Date TBD. Each competition will allow competitors of Beginner, Intermediate, Advance,  Open and of course Masters 45 and up will accumulate competition points for the series and will have one final chance to prove their progression with a final show down. Awards and prizes will be award to the top 4 competitors in each category.
