how does that work? are you using tools and crampons on the regular rock wall? or just tools?

is this open to anyone? ive only done a little ice climbing, a couple times on elot glacier, and on some hard snow about 15ft high at timberline where the plow piles it up!! and i have one old pair of tools, really old, and a mixed pair!!

 

sounds like fun!

Isn't this the "Second annual" comp John?

 

Third actually! :)

Farrgo nailed it: tools and rock shoes. And you cant hit the :brew: until after you've climbed

 

maybe i'll even be able to show early enough this year to compete?

 

You should! Comp routes in the past have favored taller individuals

 

What else?

 

We will be raising money for the Washington Climbers Coalition this year!

 

Stay tuned for more details!
