12 Hours of Summit Suffering, 2019 BAY-BEE!

You guys, we survived 12HSS, and this 12 Hours of Summit Suffering was the. best. Suffering. EVER! And it’s no coincidence, it’s all thanks to YOU - the climbers, competitors, staff, musicians, instructors, vendors, and sponsors who came out to climb with us and support us. This year we got a lot of love from a lot of like-minded businesses that we had the opportunity to partner up with, and we want to say THANK YOU to everyone involved in making this event what it was for everyone, including the competitors, something special that they (and their skin) will never forget.
