MetroRock Gives Back
At nearly every climbing gym in the world you are bound to find some sort of competitive event. Some gyms keep them local, sporatically holding smaller comps that welcome their climbing community through there doors for a day full of fun and healthy competition. Some gyms take it to a global level, opening their doors to climbers from all over the country and the world to come in and test themselves against the best on routes and boulders that baffle the imagination. Bodies fly through the air with the greatest of ease, latching on to a climbing hold placed perfectly on the wall. Everything is designed down to the finest detail to make climbers push their limits to hold on til the very end until a king and queen are announced.
More and more, these competitions are gaining the momentum as a spectator sport, with vendors, lights, music and festivities to draw in a crowd from all over. MetroRock Climbing Centers is no exception. For years we've been perfecting the art of holding world class competitions, from fun comps like the Blackout Boulder Brawl, where climbers enter a different world of climbing under the blacklights with enough neon colors to make the 80's envious, to the Dark Horse Bouldering Series that over the last 2 years has grown into an international sensation. With hundreds of competitors and just as many spectators busting through the seams, we saw a perfect opportunity to give back to the climbing community.
We are proud to announce that at every climbing competition held at MetroRock Climbing Centers, a portion of every entrance fee will go to Urban Peaks, an organization dedicated to bring the sport of climbing to disadvantaged and underrepresented youth.
Here is a list of some upcoming competitions at MetroRock Climbing Centers:
- Blackout Boulder Brawl - October 22nd at MetroNorth in Newburyport, MA ($2/entrance fee donated to Urban Peaks)
- Dark Horse Bouldering Series - November 5th at MetroNorth in Newburyport,
