Registration is now open for the Triple Crown Bouldering Series, one of the premier competitions, and more importantly, fundraisers, in the Southeast. The series consists of three different events, kicking off October 2 at Hound Ears, then on November 6 & December 4 at Horse Pens 40 and The Stone Pen, respectively.
Here's a peek at Ashley Dorough, and her take on Brutus (V2) at Hound Ears...

The goal of the Triple Crown is twofold. First and foremost, the mission is to raise funds for two organizations dedicated to maintaining climbers' access: the Southeastern Climbers' Coalition and The Carolina Climbers' Coalition. These two organizations have been instrumental in the acquisition of land for the climbing community, in a region that is riddled with access issues. Secondly, this unique event will once again provide a tremendous opportunity for vendors to promote the sport of bouldering, which has quickly become the focus of the ever growing climbing community.
Last year's impressive results are posted, in case you're interested. Registration fills up fast, so if you're thinking of going, sign up soon!
