Due to the tremendous increase in climbing comps throughout the country, Evolv has been sending its shoe demo kits all over the place. Don't worry, we'll have a demo at The Front soon. But, it looks like the shoes won't be in Utah in time to make it to the demo tomorrow evening.
It's pretty amazing how many comps there have been just in our area alone during the past few weeks. Coaches Chris and Mike and The Front Youth Climbing Team have been travelling all over, from Provo to Logan, proudly representing The Front...and freakin' crushin' the competition. Please take a second to give 'em a high 5 or freshie Front fist bump when you see them practicing Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.
Thanks to Evolv for their continued support of Citizens' Events at The Front. Keep an eye out for the rescheduled shoe demo.

Click here to learn the quantity, section, setter, and rating of new problems at The Front!
Check it out, and then let us know what we can do to make it more user friendly. We need your feedback! Our goal is to develop a more effective rating system based on the abilities of those who climb the problems, rather than one person's opinion. No more V8 blue dot problems!
The bottom line is that we at The Front want members and guests to feel psyched to try every problem, no matter what color the little sticker is on the starting hold. Of course, we want everyone to have fun and achieve their goals.
We look forward to hearing your feedback and answering your questions regarding this new feature.
See you at The Front!

Check out the selection of clothes in the Club Area of The Front! While there is a limited selection, at 5 bucks per item it's a low risk investment. If it doesn't fit, wipe down your bike with it. Everything is 5 bucks, except The Front hoodies, which are only 20 bucks!
There's some classic S7 long sleeve shirts for you or your little nieces back in Jersey. There's also some classic Front logo t's, shorts and capris by Sickle, plus some spaghetti strap tops by Statik Mountain. Put together your Deadpoint costume with this stuff!
Bleach it. Dye it. Cut the sleeves off. Tie it around your head. 5 bucks! Fur shizzo buy it, and then throw it away 'cuz you're a gangsta and that's how you roll.
Check out the selection, you may find your new favorite piece of clothing. We also have Flexfit Asana logo hats that complement any climber's wardrobe. Few things say "The Front" like a Front trucker hat or beanie.
We're over half way to having our first 50 Deadpoint registrants, so register right now to guarantee that you'll score a super scary event shirt (think The Ring the first time you saw it. Yikes!).

We got to the Yukon area right after Justin Wood sent Maisch Roof (V11). Scott Hall made quick work of First Down (V8) and another V6/7 around the corner. Oh boy.
Has the season officially started? The stickiness is definitely approaching. Or, has it been here for a while and I just need to get out more?
Let us know what you've been sending and/ or proj'ing. Share the good vibes, so we can all take care of business on those problems (of the rock climbing sort) that are keeping us awake at night!
If you haven't already, be sure to join The Front Climbing Club on Facebook. Registration is also open for Deadpoint on October 25! Register before October 18 and save $5.

Make sure to get a good warm-up
Find four problems just at your level or below. Best to have varying terrain (vertical, slight over-hung, and the cave)
Do 4x4’s with 3-4 min rest between each set.
4x4 doing for problems consecutively with no rest in between; repeating 4 times
Link ups same as 4x4 but stay on the wall for all four problems rest 3-4 min.
Systems board working lock-off and grip/ open hand strength (pinches and slopers)
Once again stay hydrated through out the work-out and refuel in the first 30 min. after to help with proper recovery. If you have questions feel free to ask the friendly Front staff. Get ready to pull down at Deadpoint!!!
Also, on October 22 you should check out The Alpinist Film Festival. Tickets are $12 and are available here at The Front.
