Come out to the Climbing Wall at James Island County Park this Saturday, March 12th, to witness a spectacular competition of strength, balance, and endurance from some of the best climbers in the Southeast. Climbers of all ages and abilities will enjoy competing on these new challenging and fun routes. La Sportiva will also be on-site with shoe demos.

Categories are determined by age and gender, and no competition experience is necessary. Space is limited, so register early to take part in the weekend events. Registration is $35.
