Triple Crown: The Stone Fort

Lisa Rands and Paul Robinson won the third and final stage of the Triple Crown Bouldering Series at the Stone Fort (aka Little Rock City) near Chattanooga, Tennessee. Robinson swept the series, previously winning the Triple Crown comps at Horse Pens 40 (Alabama) in October and Hound Ears (North Carolina) in November. Californian Lisa Rands, who flew in for this single event, took home first prize at the Stone Fort, while Kate McGinnis, second at the Stone Fort comp, won the women's open series title with a second at Horse Pens 40 and a win at Hound Ears.

The Triple Crown’s annual fall tour of Southern sandstone is the biggest competition in the Southeast. Presented by Marmot, the event is a fund-raiser for the Southeastern Climbers’ Coalition and the Carolina Climbers’ Coalition.
