The Spot Gyms Highball Comp

Photos by Ryan Nadlonek from “The Highball” on January 24th, 2009 – The Spot Bouldering Gym in Boulder, Colorado, knows how to throw a good party.

Plus, each competition has its own theme; they’ve featured paintball, sumo wrestling, and martial arts demonstrations in the past and for this event, they ran a slackline 20-feet in the air and tied in some of the area’s most balanced men and women for toproped highline highjinx.
