Wall Brawls
TBD Comprised of 10+ boulder problems, Wall Brawls are a unique opportunity to try out brand new routes in a "scramble" format. Wall Brawls embody a recreational climbing competition, whereby points are awarded based on the number of attempts required to complete a boulder problem. Points are patron awarded and self-monitored, and there are no judges, no eliminations, and no pressure to climb difficult routes - YOU get to determine the routes you want to attempt, and everyone involved is encouraged to exchange "beta" (e.g. information about how to ascend the route) with one another. Enjoy fresh problems, clean holds, and good company in a laid-back, encouraging environment! Register Here
