Fight or Flight Comp

Fight or flight: a Roped Climbing Competition


Thanks to EVERYONE for an amazing comp. We couldn't have asked for a better turnout from the climbing community! Give yourselves a hand...you guys are AWESOME! It can only get bigger and better from here.

And...the scores are IN!! The way scoring worked is that each hold and each clip were worth a certain number of points. The harder the climb within each division, the more points each hold was worth. So, the higher you got, the more points you received. Bonus points were award for each onsight send of the route (again, the harder the climb within each division, the more bonus points you received). In the Advanced Division, top 3 male and female qualifiers went on to compete in the Super Finals to determine the final placements.

Competitors: You all showed great sportsmanship and tremendous effort, strength, and determination. We applaud all of you for making this competition a huge success. We hope you had a blast because we sure did!

-- The Onsight Crew
