Defying Gravity 2023 – Team Bouldering Competition
Based on the overwhelming interest, support and fun people had with the last three Defying Gravity bouldering competitions, we’re bringing it back again for its fifth year. There’s going to be more challenges and games that’ll make this “not-your-average” and the most unique climbing comp of the year in Metro Vancouver!
This event is not about being the strongest climber. It’s about teamwork. It’s going to make you laugh. It’s going to make you think outside the box while experiencing climbing in a completely different way. It’s going to be a wicked time for everyone in a fun, relaxed and supportive environment.
If you’ve never climbed in a comp situation and want to give it a try, this is for you. If you’ve had some comp experience, this will be something that you’ve never seen before where you’ll have to trust your instincts, close your eyes, leap and hope you picked the right teammate. Experience climbing as a team sport.
Register as a team or sign up on your own (we’ll put you on a team) and face off against other teams with over 30 new boulder problems to try and our spicy-constructed team challenges…
