And that ends our 2018 season of the Summit Bouldering Series! WHOOO what a season! Thanks to everyone who came out and made this an epic one. Did everyone get a chance to try the problem with that dope spinning volume? My favorite part of the night was just watching people get dumped off of it! Keep an eye out for that volume at future comps - I have a feeling it will be hanging around a lot!
Here’s footage from our last SBS competition at Summit Dallas on Oct. 26th! If you can’t tell by the costumes, it was a Halloween - themed event. We are pretty weird here at Summit but alien and panda costumes aren’t necessarily standard for a Friday night … or are they … Anyways, check out the footage, and make sure to sign up for our next competition on Nov. 16th! We have SO FEW competitor spots left so you better snag yours before someone else does!
HOPE Y’ALL GOT SPOOKED DURING OUR HALLOWEEN COMP AT SUMMIT DALLAS! We had some sort of Haunted House going on in the Island, but I think it ended up being more of a chance for us to show off the crazy amount of fake spider webs we have. At the very least, the fog machine went a little nuts and visibility in there was SUPER LOW AKA SPOOKY.
Hey guys! Check out this cool promo vid for our upcoming SBS competition at Summit Dallas! It’s Oct 26th - so it’s a HALLOWEEN-EDITION comp! Come dressed as a ghost, a topically-relevant character from pop culture, or even … a ZOMBIE! Not signed up for the comp yet? Hurry - we have just a few spots left! Sign up here to be a part of the festivities! Rumor has a it there will even be a haunted house at the gym … but seriously, we’re making a haunted house and god knows what’s actually going to be in there. #chaos.
SO HERE'S SOMETHING EXCITING. Summit has partnered with ClimbUp, which runs two gyms in the Oklahoma City area, to bring the Summit name to Oklahoma! ClimbUp's existing locations in Norman, OK and Oklahoma City will take on the Summit name, and we're hoping to bring the same cool Summit vibe! We have never ventured outside of Texas before, so we are so excited to cross a border, and very excited to merge with ClimbUp's co-owners, Lisa and Aaron Gibson.
SBS comp #1 for the 2018 is in the books! We’re not sure what y’all crushed more of … tacos or boulder problems. Either way, the night was awesome! Our brand new VIP section was lit, with hammocks, free massages and even a VIP keg! Sign up is open now for our Oct. 26th competition at Summit Dallas! It is gonna be HALLOWEEN-THEMED so if you don’t dress up, you’ll probably be disqualified or something. At the very least we’ll tow your car. Anyways - here’s what you came for - the results from the comp, followed by some photos, provided by Kai Nacis!
12HSS - the VIDEO!!!!! Check out the footage from our latest 12 Hours of Summit Suffering! There’s climbing, falling, yoga, partying and SO. MUCH. CAMARADERIE. We seriously had the time of our lives hosting this year’s comp, and we hope y’all did, too. Check out the vid - you may see yourself, your friends, or maybe … your very SOUL. So watch it, share it, use it to convince your friend to do this crazy comp with you next year … the time is now to start recruiting and training!!

A familiar face at Summit Denton became the gym's General Manager in May! Say hello to Ross Nelson! A fixture at the Denton gym since it opened in 2015, Ross has taken the helm at our cool little gym near the downtown Denton square. A recent UNT grad, Ross knows the ins and outs of this college town (and can feel the pain of any students going through finals / weird roommate situations). Here's a bit more on Ross!
Alright climbers! — these are are the top places around the world to travel to as a rock climber! All of these are outdoor climbs and there are many places you should travel to. In no particular order, here is a list of the top 7 of the off beaten path areas all around the world! We have rated them all based on price, on a scale from $ (not too pricey) to $$$$$ (very expensive).
Did you go to Prom? This year's Pro was definitely a night to remember! Congrats to our crowned Prom King and Queen - y'all looked lovely. Thanks to everyone who came out, and especially those who were dressed to the nines. Some of y'all were looking real sharp - who would have thought climbers could clean up so good?
Happy Spring, y'all! We're celebrating the only way we know how, with a party and a comp! And this isn't just any party comp ... it's the Spring Open! This year, the weather is gonna be GREAT and we're taking the party to the streets ... or, at least, the parking lot of Summit Carrollton. We're gonna have a huge luau-themed block party out in the parking lot, with games, tacos, beer, Dallas Pets Alive! adoption van and a SCAVENGER HUNT. We'll also be hosting a gear swap - bring your old gear and either sell or swap it with other party goers! Sound awesome? Because it is!
Thanks to everyone who came out to our Into the Wild jungle-themed member party! Y'all had some crazy costumes - the costume contest was definitely a hard one to judge! One of the MANY perks of being a member at Summit is being able to come to events like these! We're hosting them all the time, just check out our events schedule!
