THE 2013 CRUSH WAS AWESOME!

On Saturday, April 27 over 140 climbers joined us for am awesome day of competition! With 91 competitors in the ABS session and 51 in our Citizens’ Session, this year’s Crush broke our all of our records for a sport climbing comp.

Team TRC took six 1st place spots and place 14 climbers in the top three of their respective categories. Nice work!

ABS Session Results for Team TRC


Our Citizens’ Session was a romp. A good number of locals and a handful of coaches were joined by a few of the TRC route setters in some good-natured competition. As the setters struggled to lap their favorite lines — it was their sixth straight day of climbing — they passed out words of encouragement and helpful bits of beta. And when the scorecards were turned in, the crowd was rewarded with some fantastic beer from Big Mike and Jag’s spectacular spread of burgers and dogs.

While it is hard to imagine a more fun sport climbing comp, we are already psyched for next year’s CRUSH!

NICE WORK AT ABS NATIONALS!

All season long, Team TRC has proven that competitive climbing can be about more than competition. ABS Nationals was no exception, and we are proud to recognize Team TRC for their efforts in Colorado Springs. Once again team parents and coaches were struck by just how special our team is. In the words of Head Coach Alex Neighbors, “I was impressed not only by how hard our team climbed, but also by how these kids support one another. Our kind of sportsmanship, our family atmosphere, is something I am very proud of.” Congratulations to all the team members who went to nationals, as well as those who supported their teammates from home. We are looking forward to seeing all of you shine during sport climbing season!

THE RAMPAGE WAS AWESOME!

If you didn’t attend the Rampage, you really missed out. Team TRC crushed, as expected, with 25 team members placing. In addition to the 95 ABS competitors we hosted, 75 folks stuck around for the Citizens’ Session. We all had fun with great bouldering, some tasty burgers, delicious home brewed beer – Thanks, Big Mike! – and, of course, a few extra shenanigans. Congratulations to Team TRC and the winners of the Citizen’s Comp. Also, Thank you to the TRC staff and their tireless volunteers that helped bring together a flawless comp!
