ABS comp – Carabiner’s, Fairfield, CT

This is a local ABS comp for the youth and a citizens comp for the adults.  There will be a raffle following the comp!

Dark Horse 1 – MetroRock South, Everett, MA
Cost: $45
Climbing: 10am – 1pm for citizens & youth, 11:30am – 2:30pm for pros, 3:30pm – 4:30pm youth finals, 5pm – 6pm pro finals

This is the first comp in a series that culminates in a championship event in late winter.  There is over $4000 in gear & prizes for the youth and citizens winners and a $2500 cash purse for the pros.  Event T-shirts are $10 with pre-registration and $5 from every entry goes to the Urban Peaks charity.

If you have been following the blog, you’ll know that last week I had a “bye week.”  But it feels like so much longer!!  So I am very excited to get back into the swing of competitions.  I’ll be checking out Dark Horse this weekend.  I’ve made it to at least one DH comp in each of the series.  It’s amazing what a big event this has evolved into over 5 years.
