Video by Earth Treks Climbing - The Roc Comp is back! Check out this teaser of one of America's biggest and best bouldering comps: Lisa Rands, Chris Sharma, Jason Kehl, Matt Bosley, Charlotte Jouett, Emily Harrington and more. The 2010 Earth Trek Roc Comp: Pro-Am Bouldering Event will be held in Columbia, Maryland on April 23rd & 24th.
Legends do make a comeback. Back in 2004 and 2005, the Roc Comp attracted the nation's top competitors and over a thousand screaming spectators. DJs and professional video and lighting crews made the facility pulsate with an unparalleled energy that became legendary in the circles of pro-athletes and the attending audience. Years passed and other comps came and went, but in the trenches of the climbing community, the Roc Comp reigned supreme.
On April 23 and 24, 2010, we're one-upping ourselves.
For the Amateurs this is going to be a typical red-point bouldering competition with over 150 new bouldering problems. Climb side by side with some of the biggest names in climbing today (Lisa Rands, Paul Robinson, Charlotte Jouet-Bosley, and Matt Bosley to name a few).
For the Pros it will be a red-point qualifying round to determine who goes on to the next day to battle it out for an $11,000 cash purse. For the spectators, a vendor village will be set up outside of the gym with over 20 vendors showcasing their newest gear.
Come rub shoulders with your climbing idols, snort chalk and celebrate the power of this sport!
