Ground Fall #2 – Bloc Shop, Montreal, QC
Cost: $5 + day pass
Climbing: 6:00pm – 10:00pm
Categories: none

This super fun and slightly ridiculous comp is one where you wear a harness, tie into a rope, and then boulder.  You have no belayer and, if you fall, you will fall on the ground. Hence the name.  Flash format on 4 problems/routes and you get points per hold.

Master Setter Championship – True North, Toronto, ON
Cost: registration has closed

Public Judging: Apr 27 – May 11

An innovative addition to the comp climbing scene.  Canada gathers their routesetters in one gym and challenges them to set the best routes they can.  Who will be the Setter’s Choice and will the public agree when they get to vote?
