This weekend a few of our NE climbers will make the trip out to Colorado Springs for ABS Open Nationals, but fear not if you are staying in the area. There is a live stream for the event as well as lots of opportunities for you to crush a little closer to home.

So much excitement going on this weekend! It’s probably a good thing I signed up for ABS Open Nats, because I’m not sure I could pick just one of these comps to attend! Look for details on the blog about the live feed for Nats. And as always, you can check the comp schedule page for comps a little farther in the future.
