Frequently Asked Questions

Can I do this solo?

We want you to stay safe! Every team needs someone to climb and someone to belay.

Can I win without the clue sheet?

Only participants who check in the morning of to pick up their clue sheet are eligible for prizes. It's for a good cause! Go make that SLCA donation to enter.

I'm a beginner — can I participate?

Absolutely! Routes will vary in difficulty. You're encouraged to find ones that match your skill level.

Do I need to bring my trad equipment?

A few routes will require trad equipment. Most do not.

Can I win more than one prize?

When you bring a totem to the afterparty, your name will be entered into a raffle and you'll win a prize. You'll get a prize either way, so to take another from another climber isn't super sportsmanlike tbh
