This is a climbing competition for VOC members of any skill level. There will be three main events:

  1. 'Conventional' climbing competition (male & female)
  2. Crate Stacking (unisex)
  3. Prussiking (unisex, single elimination style)*
  • two ropes will be set up, 'unseeded' competitors will be split randomly into groups of two, and whoever wins will advance into the next round. 'Seeded' competitors will know who they are. We will be prussiking up the ropes to touch the top anchors, and then prussiking back down. Whoever touches the floor again first wins. Close times will be decided by re-competition - speed tying a triple fisherman's knot in 5mm cord.

The price to enter is $5.00. This money will be used almost entirely towards prizes.

There will be prizes for each of the competitions as well as random door prizes. Please come out and compete (or even not if you really don't want to) - it will be fun, and it will be about having fun and not only about being the toughest crate stacker out there.
