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.
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!!

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!
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!
Bouldering League starts next week! Just what is Bouldering League and why should you care?! Bouldering League is our way of bringing climbers of all different abilities together to compete against each other, push themselves, and hang out with folks they might not have otherwise met! It's easy to get in a rut while climbing - you come in on the same days, hang out with the same people, and only get on problems that are within your comfort zone. Well Bouldering League will snap you out of that funk, with the added promise of being really friggin' fun.
So Footloose was incredible ... y'all made it the best campus comp / 80s party EVER. Huge shout Texas Ale Project for throwing a bunch of beer our way! If you had a pale ale or a stout that night and really dug it, it's thanks to those guys! Another shout-out to Brass Tacks Barbershop for coming out and giving some great haircuts. Does anyone know if anyone ended up with a mullet?!! Anyways, results are here!
