The executive directors have ten years of diverse event production background, including ten years of climbing competitions, triathlons, mud runs, adventure races, and more. We take our experience there and apply it to an annual climbing festivity!
Why compete? For most people, climbing is not inherently a competitive thing. While there is a format that allows us to quantify skill, the real value in climbing comps is the level of support you get from your peers, the extra “push” you get in trying to do your best that day on all-new routes you’ve never climbed before, and the big ol’ party that celebrates what you love!
We will have finals and a children’s division!
SLO Op comps feature:
cheap entry that covers guest setters, free beer, and refreshments for the setters who work three solid days to get ready for this thing
new shirt designs
prizes like chalkbags, ropes, shoes, and stickers
food available from neighboring vendors
dj or emcee keeping the energy up the whole time
And don’t forget the extras, like our famous ALPINE KNOT TYING CONTEST!
If you’re not from here, we suggest you check out all the awesome stuff there is to do in SLO: we’ve got beaches, wine tasting, great food and bars, and climbing *in town!*
