Superior Climbing Competition: Winter 2018 Semester (Date TBD)

This event brings climbers from across the upper Midwest together for a day of friendly competition and camaraderie. New and seasoned climbers of all ages are encouraged to participate and share in the community that makes climbing such a special sport. The day begins with a kids' competition, which features routes set specifically for younger climbers. Many of the youth participants are members of our Saturday morning Kids' climbing class, Toonbusters. The next competition, for ages 16 and older, attracts students and community members. Two-three hours of open-format climbing are followed by an exciting finals round.
