Summer Sweat Fest Finale – Climber’s Rock, Burlington, ON

Climbing: 10am – 1pm citizens, 9am quals & 6pm finals open

The finale is here after 5 Thursday night events over the summer!  The citizens have one more chance to climb in a friendly format scramble event and for the pros it all comes down to this comp.  The series leaders (male and female) have a bye into finals and everyone else is duking it out for the other 14 spots in finals (7 men, 7 women).  Both quals and finals will be happening on Climber’s Rock’s brand-new Walltopia Monster!


Last year I attended Over the Top at Delaware Rock Gym and had a great time.  Over the summer I competed in 2 of the Summer Sweat Fest events and really loved the format.  So I was a little torn about which event I was going to go to this weekend, but in the end I registered for the SSF Finale.  Once my mind was made up, I started getting really excited.  I can’t wait to check out the Walltopia Monster!!
