  • It gets you motivated – to become fitter, stronger and become a better climber. You have a goal that inspires you to train!
  • It’s fun and social! Some comps even a dress up theme and novelty climbs
  • It improves your ability to read routes and sequences – you’ll be trying climbs for the first time. It will require you to plan ahead an be efficient in your climbing
