Ground Fall #3 – 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.
