Sourlands Smackdown Rock Climbing Competition April 12

Boulderers are invited to the Sourland Mountain Preserve in Hillsborough, New Jersey on Saturday, April 12, 2014 for New Jersey’s only organized outdoor bouldering (rock climbing) competition.

 

The event is scheduled to begin at 9:00 A.M. Participants and spectators should meet in the Sourland Mountain Preserve parking lot off East Mountain Road in Hillsborough, New Jersey.

 

Bouldering is a style of rock climbing undertaken without a rope and normally limited to very short climbs so that a fall will not result in injury. It is typically practiced on large boulders or artificial man-made boulders, however it can also be practiced at the base of larger rock faces.

 

Financial sponsorship is provided in part by proceeds from the 2013 Banff Mountain Film Festival in Princeton sponsored by Blue Ridge Mountain Sports. Prize donations are provided by Eastern Mountain Sports, REI, MoClimbing, and Access Fund.

 

Information is available by calling 908-231-0802, ext. 22 or by email at ddendler@scparks.org.
