We've had some questions about the TRUE GRIP comp, and we want to offer some answers here:
1) The adult comp will be broken up into the categories of Recreational, Intermediate, Advanced, and Open. These boulder problems will be similar in difficulty to the problems that are currently on the walls at R&J.
2) The Youth D category will be able to climb all boulder problems with open feet- meaning that they can use any holds on the wall for their feet, while using their hands on only properly marked holds.
3) All prizes will be given away in the raffle
