ASCEND Point Breeze will be closed all day long on Saturday, April 15 for the youth competition. The entire facility, not just the rope canyon!
Try hard getting to the top and have fun with your friends for a chance to win some prizes! 30 brand new top-rope and lead climbs will be available ranging in difficulty from recreational, intermediate, and advanced. Competitors must possess a green or blue card to participate!
The top three finishers (18 people total!) of each division (recreational, intermediate, advanced) and category (men, trans, non-binary and women, trans, non-binary) will win prize packages that include chalk, carabiners, chalk bags and buckets, and more!
Other things you might be curious about:
You can show up late and leave early! If you end up placing, but are not present, no worries, you still earned your spot and will be recognized!
This is a redpoint competition, meaning, you have to make it all the way to the top to count a climb as sent. Your top FOUR climbs will count toward your total score.
There will be some lead only climbs, but mostly top-rope climbs available for all to try!
