I am briefly switching gears from outdoors-outside to outdoors-inside. By this, I mean the Bouldering competitions that are taking place inside the Student Recreational Center this weekend.
This is an annual event put on by the Outdoor Recreational Center and has several categories of varying experience level for both men and women. It is relatively cheap to enter and there are some great climbers on campus. As a newbie to the sport of bouldering, I plan on entering as a “recreational-class” climber and look forward to enjoying the atmosphere and watching some crazy skills just as much as actually climbing myself.
Right now, there are three basic questions in my mind. 1. Who all is showing up? 2. What is the general consensus on who should win the Men and Women’s “Advanced” categories? 3. What kind of cool prizes can be expected?
Give me a piece of your mind. Even a little trash talk, if you are a good climber, will not be discouraged.

I hope to see you there!
