10 Reasons to Compete in the RRGCC Clip n’ Go Comp

October 8th, 2008 by Rick

Below are the Top 10 Reasons why everyone should participate in the 2008 Rocktoberfest Clip n’ Go Climbing Competition.

1. Everyone has a chance to win

Sore heel has routes from 5.4 to 5.14c
Three each divisions for men and women means everyone is competing for prizes
Old Stone division for the climbers who want to have a great climbing day, make a donation with out all the hassle.

2. Endurance

Comp is endurance based, so a 5.12 and a 5.10 with the same number of bolts has the same number of points

3. Strategy

This competition has a strategy. Just doing the hardest route probably won’t get you the win. To maximize the points, climb each route twice. The first time gets 2 points per bolt and 4 for the anchors, while the 2nd time gets 1 point for each bolt and 1 point for the anchors.

4. Beginning of the season workout

Best way to get in shape is to climb a ton. How many pitches can you do? How many bolts can you clip?

5. Crowd avoidance

Only competitors will be allowed to use Sore Heel parking Saturday until 2:00 pm 150+ routes at 13 crags (you do the math)

6. Supports the purchase of a great climbing area

No overhead means 99.97% of your $15 entry fee in goes to

    You say “Bee Rock Campground” in the registration, but the pdf says Natural Bridge Cabin Company Campground.
    Which is it? Thanks!

  2. Paul Vidal Says:

    they’re one in the same. technically, it’s the natural bridge cabin company campground. previously, until last year i think, it was known as bee rocks campground.

    Cool. Thanks! I looked up Bee Campground and found a place near Lake Cumberland. I’m old enough to remember when it was called Bee, not young enough to remember that was what it was called :-)
