Bank Of America Parking Lot, Barracks
Horse Pens 40 - Steele, Al
HP 40 Bouldering Comp is happening Nov 22.
(The Stone Fort comp is on October 25, but I have a scheduling conflict and cannot attend)
‘The goal of the Triple Crown is twofold. First and foremost, the mission is to raise funds for two organizations dedicated to maintaining climbers’ access: the Southeastern Climbers’ Coalition and The Carolina Climbers’ Coalition. These two organizations have been instrumental in the acquisition of land for the climbing community, in a region that is riddled with access issues. Secondly, this unique event will once again provide a tremendous opportunity for vendors to promote the sport of bouldering, which has quickly become the focus of the ever growing climbing community.’
The comp organizers have not posted details yet, but I want to give everyone plenty of time to sign up…Rough plan is leave Friday at noon (this is about a 9~10 hour drive), climb/comp on Saturday (weather permitting), drive back Sunday. Bring homework just in case the comp gets pushed back to Sunday because we’ll be getting back nice and late if that’s the case. We will be camping at the boulder field/HP40 property.
Read about and sign up for the comp at www.triplecrownbouldering.org
Entrance into the comp is $50. This includes a shirt, and everyone usually walks away with tons of swag. More importantly, proceeds go to a good cause. The comp is friendly to everyone from beginner to advanced and even those of you who’ve achieved pro status.
-crash pad if you have one
-Cash (for dinner Saturday at the comp and raffle tickets if you want to participate)
-Camping gear you have
Club will provide:
-up to 150$ gas money per vehicle, (up to 10$ tip for drivers) As this is a long drive… any additional gas funds may need to be split evenly among the riders).
-Camping fees up to 10$ per person/night.
-Climbing/camping gear to check out
Ride details will be determined closer to the event. I am planning on leaving around noon (potentially earlier) Friday as this is a 10 hour drive. Everyone will be waitlisted till other drivers sign up. Indicate desired departure times and if there is a later car leaving we will try and accommodate. With all of the crash pads that typically need to fit, we will need everyone to coordinate packing. We will also try to coordinate plans with the climbing team if necessary. We leave to return Sunday morning.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
(The $20 fee is only listed incase fuel expenses is not fully covered, i.e. come prepared to chip in just in case. The number of attendees will be flexible, but primarily determined by drivers and space)
