Friday, July 23rd:
1:00p - Gear Check/Check In 2:00p - Pre event workshop and practice climb for new/novice/first time competitors Head Judge, Doug Tochtrop, will take anyone who is unfamiliar with the competition format, new to competing, or just generally feeling shaky and wanting to get a bit more comfortable, around for a walk-through of the events. This will be similar to the morning walk-through on Saturday, except you will be with a group of your peers at the same, or similar, skill level, and the competition isn't waiting for the walk through to finish to start. No Pressure! Ask as many questions as you can think of! There will also be a practice tree set up as a Speed Climb for anyone who would like to run it to do so with no scoring or time kept, unless you would like us to time you :). *** Please watch for updates! We may start much earlier depending on how many sign up! And we may ask competitors who are willing and able, to run the first event in their group line up on Friday to allow for a timely finish on Saturday.
