Weekend Preview: Oct 27 – 31

So this week is so chock full of Halloween themed climbing comps, that the “weekend” preview had to come out on Tuesday!  You should be able to make it to at least one of these comps, plus almost every other  gym in the northeast is hosting some kind of Halloween party/event/shenanigans.  Pick an awesome (and sturdy) costume, cause you’re going to get some mileage out of it!
