Competition Bouldering Clinic

@ Triangle Rock Club – Durham

Have you ever wondered what the comp wall is all about in Durham? Are you wondering what the comp wall even is?

If you’ve climbed at Durham and wondered why one area was set with far fewer holds – and seemingly much harder moves! – then this clinic might be for you. Competition style setting and climbing is not what most climbers are used to, but it isn’t impossible!

Team TRC Head Coach Brad Hilbert is running a clinic to help our members understand the difference between competition and commercial setting along with strategies for flashing boulders at the highest level.
