Prizes: 1st, 2nd and 3rd place competitors in all Adult Categories will receive a sweet product prize from one of our event sponsors.

USAC Credit and OPEN Category: Youth CANNOT get USAC credit for the comp if they compete in the OPEN Category. In the unusual case that a youth participant wants to compete for BOTH USAC credit AND prizes  must register for and climb in both sessions. Yes, that means they have to pay twice.
