The latest Touchstone Rope Series comp at Great Western Power Company went off well, with a ton of climbers testing out the new routes in the lead area and on the topropes around the gym.
221 competitiors showed up to fight their way to the top of GWPC's technical walls. Local photographer and writer, Jim Thornburg signed copies of his new book "Stone Mountains" and even donated a signed copy to be raffled off to the climbers in attendance.
Pyramid Brewery supplied great beer, and Extreme Pizza provided much needed fuel to all the hungry climbers.
Andrew Bisharat, one of the editors over at Rock and Ice, just wrote a great article titled Doing Your Best in a Climbing Comp. The hardman sport climber, boulderer, and writer goes over nutrition information, comp strategy, and how to mentally prepare for the comp.
Check out the tips and prepare for the next rope series comps at Mission Cliffs on March 18th.
