Community Challenge

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021

COMPETE WITH FRIENDS. TRACK YOUR PROGRESS. HAVE FUN. WIN PRIZES!

Download the KAYA app TODAY to join!

Our ALL NEW Community Challenge is similar to our Boulder Series (or leagues) of the past but amped up in a whole new way!

Designed to be 2 competitions in one (seasoned pro or newbie), prizes will be awarded for top overall winners; recognition for “most improved”, “most recommendations” and “most unique routes”; plus a variety of weekly flash challenges worked in for added fun.

Regardless of your climbing ability (strong or newbie), this is sure to be a fun social experiment – er, EXPERIENCE –  for everyone involved.

WHY ARE WE USING THE KAYA APP?

The KAYA Climb app may be new to the Tacoma community but is used by climbers all around the world and its features help us better facilitate the challenge by:

  1. Making it easier for us to track participation and progress.
  2. Giving you real time standings to see where you’re at, how your progress compares to others and exactly what you need to do to WIN!

USAC YOUTH BOULDERING COMP

Tuesday, November 24th, 2020

2020 Virtual Climbing Competition

November 9-23, 2020

Edgeworks has always been dedicated to providing opportunities for youth climbers to advance their skills and become strong competitors on a local, regional and national level. That is why we’ve chosen to partner with USA Climbing and other gyms in our region to offer a Virtual Youth Climbing Competition, November 9-23.

In preparation, we’re also excited to announce a new combined effort of Edgeworks and Stone Gardens route setters who will be working to reset both our boulder and rope walls! 

Starting November 2, you’ll notice focused attention on our boulder walls as these teams work to reset for the competition. The benefit will be 60+ new competition problems for all to enjoy! You don’t have to be a youth climber to get your hands on these stellar new routes. 

And, while we’re working with other coaches and climbing teams to reduce any impact on our reservation system, it’s important to note that during the 2-week comp period (Nov 9-23) reservations for ZONE 4 could fill up faster than usual.

Please make sure to adjust your plans accordingly.

Our experienced, professional, and AMGA certified climbing instructors will lead a different clinic – from clipping and un-clipping quickdraws to hauling and raising systems. These clinics will be taught virtually via Google Meet with sign-in links and instructions emailed with registration.

Clinics are FREE for members but space is limited so be sure to SIGN-UP early to claim your spot and take advantage of this cool member perk!

Registration for each clinic will be made available 6 days in advance of the scheduled date.

Cancellations + No-Shows
