12HSS 2018!!!!! Results and photos from our annual suffer-fest!

Dang, what a weekend! This Saturday was our annual 12 Hours of Summit Suffering, our favorite event of the year to host! This one was definitely an incredible one - we had 250 COMPETITORS climb from 9 am to 9 pm at all FIVE Summit locations! They climbed, they took classes, they dressed up, they CONQUERED. Here is a brief recap from the event - click through our photo gallery to see our brave competitors / staff throughout the event!

The 12 Hours of Summit Suffering competition is coming around the corner! (If you don't know what that is, click on the link! Trust us ... it's awesome.) Not only is this a super fun comp, but every competitor has a chance to win something awesome during the huge raffle that happens after the comp! This competition would be nothing without its sponsors, so we wanted to use this post to give all of them a shout-out, plus let y'all know some of the goodies you can look forward to maybe snagging! The after-party this year will be at Summit Grapevine and will include food, beer, awards and the raffle prizes! Of course, we aren’t competing for the goods, but this is a climber's DREAM raffle! The prizes include ski lift tickets, bottles, chalk, chalk bags, ropes, LOTS of gift cards, clothes, clinics, climbing shoes, snacks, crag packs, brushes, coupons, even yoga gear!

To Hell and Back - a recap from 24 Hours of Horseshoe Hell!

It was so incredible to see SO MANY Summit members at Horseshoe Canyon Ranch this past weekend for 24 Hours of Horseshoe Hell! It felt like everywhere we looked, there was a Summit shirt. Summit owners Kyle Clinkscales and Chris LoCrasto competed, as well as gym GMs David Michener and Bryan Prater, Team Texas coach Dylan Honeyman and Media and Events Coordinator Caillin Murray, and yoga instructor Ashley Gardner (with many more employees in attendance). Our awesome resident photographer Jimmy Pancakes took a lot of great shots, so come live vicariously through them, or get PTSD if you were there this weekend!

And today in totally ridiculous and impressive feats, we are super proud to announce that Summit climbers Tanner Merkle and Dalan Faulkner took first place in Men's Elite at this year's 24 Hours of Horseshoe Hell competition, which took place this weekend at Horseshoe Canyon Ranch. If the name doesn't already give it away, it's a 24 hour climbing competition, where you have from 10 am on Friday morning til 10 am Saturday to climb as much. as. you. possibly. can. If you wanna do well, you can't sleep, but instead must become a climbing machine, programmed to crush, and crush only.

12 Hours of Summit Suffering - ARE YOU READY?

It's here again! The time is nearing for our second annual 12 Hours of Summit Suffering competition! The comp is August 27th, and you'll have from 9 am to 9 pm to climb as many routes as you can, at three of our locations! (Dallas, Carrollton, and Grapevine.) We modeled this competition off of the infamous 24 Hours of Horseshoe Hell competition. We're making this year's bigger than last year's — more food, more beer, more raffles — we're even increasing the number of competitors! This year we are adding more ways to earn point bonuses - like taking a yoga and an abs class will give you a massive boost!
