It's about time for a rope comp, isn't it?
On Friday, Jan. 25th, we're hosting the Whips & Clips rope competition at Summit Grapevine. This is a redpoint top-rope & lead climbing competition, with an exciting onsight finale at the very end!
Doors open at 6 p.m., pre-registered climbers pick up their scorecards. 16 and up for competitors, please!
Climbing starts at 7, and y'all will have until 10 p.m. to crush as many of our freshly-set, super dope routes as possible. Turn your scorecards in at 10 p.m. sharp! Your top three sends count towards your final score. You must SEND a route for it to count — means bottom to top with no falling. So don't be hang doggin' and marking that as a send.
After some quick math from the scorekeepers, the top five top five competitiors in the male and female Open categories will climb in our onsight final at 10:30 pm.
And then that's when the party really starts! We'll have kegs on kegs for you guys to enjoy, as well as food. Please bring your ID if you plan on drinking - 21+ to drink because obvi.
Grab your spot now, we are limiting competitor spots to 100 total. Competitor passes are $30 each, and spectator spots are $20. We also offer a dope VIP package that comes with a custom Pan Ector shirt, your own groovy hang out area, a fancy keg to yourselves (so you can keep partying when when the other kegs float), and an exclusive raffle with some rad gear.

Here's how this redpoint competition will work: You will be able to climb as many routes as you want, with as many tries as you want. Each route will have a point value to it. Your top three sends count as your total score. If you flash the route (send it first go), then you get a bonus! Leading a route will also get you a point bonus! Honor system, so please no cheating!
For those not looking to compete, but just cheer on your friends as they crush, we also have $20 spectator passes available that get you access to the food and beer, as well! Show up after 10 p.m. to watch finals, and spectating is FREE!
