Since 2004, Edgeworks has been incorporating the CHALLENGE and MOTIVATION of a climbing competition with the CREATIVITY, STOKE and FUN of black lights. Our stellar team of route setters craft 55 of the best problems of the year and our creative team of staff and volunteers decorate the walls to make them glow. No matter your skill level, you can’t help but feel the EXCITEMENT when the lights go out.

From the route setting, black light tape decor, costumes and DJ; to the pre-registation swag bags, awards and raffle prizes, each year keeps getting better because we never stop looking for new or different ways to mix things up.

While you’re here, be sure to check out the VIDEO from a previous Black Light comp!←(click the link to watch).
