Mammut Bouldering Championships!

I know two weeks have passed since the big comp week during the OR Show, but I think it has taken this long for things to finally slow down to our normal, non-frantic pace here at the Front SLC. that it I have a moment, I want to update you all a bit on how everything went.

It was fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The qualifying round here at the gym was exciting and the gym looked absolutely amazing, if I do say so myself. THANK YOU to everyone - Front staff, NE2C staff, and all our volunteers that made the countless hours of hard work not only possible, but fun.

You can check out lots of great photos of the Mammut Bouldering Championships (including the qualifying round) at Congrats to Daniel Woods and Alex Johnson for their exciting first place finishes!

The Redpoint Citizens' Comp at The Front was a huge success with over 100 competitors! We had a great BBQ followed by a presentation by Josh Lowell and Chris Sharma on their new film Progression. You can find the results for the Citizens' Comp on our website

Thank you to our sponsors for the event! The Front is known for our fantastic bouldering events and awesome prizes - none of which would be possible without you! Thank you to Mammut, Black Diamond, Nutriex, Redpoint Nutrition, Native, Nemo, Evolv, Madrock, So Ill, Etch, Sanuk, Asana, ClimbIt, Five Ten, and NE2C!
