Who’s ready to watch climbing at the Summer Olympics in Paris? We are! Why not join in the fun? Join us in a fun challenge to build community and spread awareness about the work of the WMCC.

In order to qualify, tackle one or more of the Olympic Game categories at a Western MA crag between July 20th and August 25th, post on Instagram about your challenge, and tag @wmcc_climb_gneiss . We’ll share your success and announce a winner in each category (bonus points to those posts that elevate the work of the WMCC).

 

Suggested Olympic Games

Choose one or try all three!

Summer 2024: Climb 24 pitches in a day without repeating the same pitch more than twice. Up the challenge by not repeating any pitches or climbing only pitches over a certain grade.

Combined Format: Do four boulder problems and two lead routes at your project grade in the same day. Choose problems and routes that will be an appropriate challenge for you!

Speed: Pick a route. How fast can you climb it? Sara McFadden has the FKT on the Beach at 3:28 with the draws already hung. Make sure to specify if you lead it or top roped it!

 

FINE PRINT

Respect all closures and practice Leave No Trace principles. As always, safety is your responsibility; all participants compete at their own risk.
