Desert Dogs Comp - CO

Desert Dogs CompWith the first skiff of snow I am going to hang up the cams for the winter and start heading to the gym for my climbing fix. Those of you who will be in the Grand Junction area on Saturday October 20th can show off mad skills at the Desert Dogs Competition. Desert Dogs 2007 Bouldering Competition is presented by Core Elements Rock Gym in Grand Junction, Colorado.

The comp will have a men's and women's division. Backcountry.com is giving some sweet gear for the winners and every competitor will get hooked up with a goody bag. Stay for the after party with live music and free food.

Pre-register online for $25 or at the door for $30. Only 27 days to get in shape, giddy up!

This is a totally naive comment. Here's why...

The Desert Dog Competition at Core Elements in Grand Junction was a great success. Over 30 ambitious boulderers competed last Saturday for the best places and prizes. Daniel Tompkins won with the highest number of points and the best performance in the final. These young climbers were really worth watching.

the desert dogs competition in grand junction, colorado had a format that makes me possibly want to compete in another bouldering comp. very low-key with a lot of comradery.

there were some very strong male and female competitors and yes the finals round was very exciting. daniel tompkins scored the highest in the preliminary and proved in the finals that he was the strongest climber that day.

@ anonymous:

this comment sums up how most all comps should be - very low-key with a lot of comradery. Glad to hear you had a great comp and that you're amped to do another one.

Kudos to the organizers. Backcountry.com is stoked to have been a sponsor and will likely be down for another sponsorship next year.

Low key is what its all about here at BC. I was a route setter in Durango and loved the gym scene at ACR, which is now out of business RIP.

Watch for more comps coming up this winter!
