1000 Route Challenge Begins!
Climb 1,000 indoor routes at any Gravity Vault Indoor Rock Gym in one calendar year! (between January 1 and December 31, 2017).
An average route in our gyms is 30’ high; so you will climb 30,000 vertical feet in a year – the equivalent of climbing Mt. Everest (29,029 feet) without leaving the gym!
- Registration for the challenge is $30. Early registration (December 2016) is only $15. The first 20 registrants from each location will receive a free t-shirt.
- Open to all members and guests of The Gravity Vault ages 18 and older.
- You just need to finish a route, routes you fall on still count!
- You cannot climb more than 10% of your 1000 routes on the “party walls” (non-marked climbs) (max 100 party routes for the year can count toward your total), otherwise no limitations on route grades or mix; lead routes also count just not boulder problems!
- You can climb any grade route and can climb the same route multiple times, even in the same day. They can all be 5.8’s or all be 5.12’s, each count the same. Prizes will, however, be awarded at the end of the year for those who push their limits!
- You must register for the challenge prior to routes counting toward your total; no routes climbed prior to registering can be counted toward your total.
- You can only register to compete at one Gravity Vault Location, and will only be competing against others who have registered at the same location as you.
- You can climb routes at any Gravity Vault facility.
- You must track your climbs using the website: 1000routechallenge.com
- You don’t have to start the challenge on January 1st, you can join the challenge at any point during the year, but everyone’s challenge ends at midnight on Saturday, December 31st, 2017.
- We will occasionally post a leader board and prizes will be awarded to all who complete the challenge and special prizes will be given for an array of accomplishments including:
- The fastest to complete 1000 Routes (each gender)
- Most number of climbs (each gender) – you don’t have to stop at 1,000!
- Hardest average grade (each gender)
Prizes will include gear, memberships and other exciting prizes. Additionally, all those who finish the challenge will be rewarded and entered to win great prizes!
SEE YOU OUT THERE!
