There will be top-rope and bouldering at this comp, plus a lead (qualified climbers only) exhibition, but only the top-rope results will be counted towards MACCS scoring. It is only open to students (grad & undergrad) and you must bring your student ID and course schedule to register. Free T-shirt with entry, but supplies are limited!

I am heading to Altitude for the next installment of the Tour de Bloc. The knee injury that I sustained during finals of the last TdB is keeping the extent of my participation in question, but I’ll be there!! I’m hoping that my traditional American Thanksgiving dinner was a magical elixir that cures knees. If not, I’m eating lots of Christmas cookies just to cover my bases:)
