MetroRock Presents: March Madness Ropes Comps! On two Saturdays in March, we will be hosting rope comps for climbers of all ages and abilities.
The first event is in Newburyport on March 16th. In the morning, the kids will take to the ropes for a USA Climbing sanctioned SCS local comp. After the dust settles and the prizes are given out, we'll open registration again for the college and adult climbers for a late afternoon CCS/adult open comp. Both comps on this date will be redpoint format--climbers can make as many attempts as they can get in the time allowed.
Two weeks later, on the 30th, we move the show to Everett for a similar but different set of events. Again in the morning, the kids run the show in a youth open (not SCS sanctioned). And again, a few hours later, the college kids and adults take to the ropes for their turn. This time around, we'll be running a flash format comp where you only get one turn per route with your high point being your final score for the route.
