Competition Report just in from Stephen Wilkers @ UNCG Outdoor Adventures.

This past Saturday, February 20th marked the 12th annual Spartan Summit climbing competition. We had over 25 climbers compete in 3 divisions: Advanced, Intermediate, and Beginner. It was a beautiful day for climbing with temperatures in the low 60’s and a bluebird day. Registration started at 10am and the first heat started climbing at 11am.

After the three heats concluded we had a prize ceremony where, thanks to our sponsors, everyone walked away with something for their efforts. We had a great lunch provided by Chick-Fil-A and Earth Fare as well as a gear sale with lots of outdoor goodies for dirt cheap prices. If you missed the fun this year there is no need to worry, there will another climbing competition next year. In the meantime please stop by The Edge and get those hours of practice in now.

Congratulations to all our winners, and great job to all other climbers. We truly appreciate your presence and enthusiasm.
