UPDATE 4/17/2010: The comp is taking place at EarthTreks Timonium location, not in Rockville as previously posted. I apologize for any confusion. Come out and get to know your fellow climbers better as we admire & learn from the pros!

Earth Treks Climbing Centers, Mountain Hardwear and the Unified Bouldering Championships are proud to announce the first event on the 2010 UBC Pro Tour, The Earth Treks Roc Comp, April 23 & 24, 2010. The 2010 Roc Comp will span two days of climbing and will host climbers ranging from the top pros in the world to beginners psyched to check out their first comp. The Citizens Comp and a hands-on Vendor Village will be held in conjunction with the qualifying red-point round on Friday, April 23rd in our Columbia climbing facility. On Saturday, April 24th in our Timonium climbing facility, top climbers worldwide including Chris Sharma, Lisa Rands and Paul Robinson will compete for an $11,000 cash purse (courtesy of Russel Automotive ) as well as cumulative individual point rankings towards the overall UBC Pro Tour Championship . Come rub shoulders with your climbing idols, snort chalk and celebrate the power of this sport!
Meetup Info: In just a few short weeks some of the top boulderers in the nation (male and female) will be coming to EarthTreks Rockville, MD to compete in a bouldering competition. I thought it would be fun if a group of us went up to watch the finals and enjoy the after party. Spectator tickets, including admission to the after party, cost $20 and can be purchased here (scroll to the bottom of the page):
Important: Everyone is responsible for purchasing their own ticket. The citizens' comp occurs on Friday and Saturday, April 23rd-24th. The citizens comp and the quarter and semi-final pro competitions are FREE to spectators if you want to go check it out. If you're feeling strong, you can even choose to register to compete at varying citizen levels! Details for this can also be found on the website links above. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Post if you're interested in carpooling, as it's friendly to the earth, reduces parking demand, and is just more fun!
