ABS Youth Divisionals – Gravity Vault, Upper Saddle River, NJ
Division 5

One more step!  The top youth from each region will battle it out at the division level for a spot at Nationals.

I’ll be chalking up at Climber’s Rock on Saturday still bearing a scar/badge of honor from my last encounter with the Walltopia Monster in the boulder lab.  It’s time to even the score!
