We’re back with the 11th Annual Blacklight Bouldering competition – known to many as one of the MOST FUN climbing events in the region! This unique event combines the VISUALLY STIMULATING appeal of black lights with the EXCITEMENT and ENERGY of a climbing competition, making it just as cool to watch as it is to participate.

Last year’s improvements to sessions, flow, and decor were a huge success and this year is sure to be even better with the addition of the one and only Zootown DJ as the event emcee; as well as the return of DJ Johnny Devine!

Open to ALL ages and abilities – check out the competition details below. Volunteer Opportunities are also available so be sure to check out the additional info at the end of this post.

FREE AFTER PARTY! 6PM – 8PM
Once the competition ends, everyone 21+ is invited to join us in the upstairs lounge for FREE beer and the musical selections of the one and only, DJ Johnny Devine.
Comp registration not required.
