What do you need to climb 12 hours straight?  

Tape.  Lots and lots of tape.  

And caffeine.

In about one month, Planet Granite Belmont is hosting the most unique competition this side of the Mississippi!  Join them for a 12-hour climbing competition to support the American Safe Climbing Assocation.  


12 Hour Belmont Battle for Bolts 

Sleep is optional, sending is mandatory 



Saturday, October 22nd – Sunday, October 23rd 

8:00pm – 8:00am 



The Battle for Bolts is a one-of-a-kind twelve hour partner climbing competition to raise money for the American Safe Climbing Association (ASCA). The ASCA is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping keep our sport climbing areas maintained. Since 1998, the ASCA has replaced over 7,500 old bolts at local climbing areas like Pinnacles, Donner Summit, Yosemite and hundreds of other areas across the state and worldwide. Largely run by volunteers, the ASCA relies on donations from individuals and organizations such as ours. 

With the popularity of sport climbing growing and with more volunteers helping to replace old bolts, the ASCA ran out of money earlier this year. For the month of October, Planet Granite has pledged to match up to $20,000 of donations raised for the ASCA. As part of this commitment we have created the Battle for Bolts. 


What to Expect 

This Battle will be epic! Enter with a partner or a group, and climb as many routes as you can in 12 hours at Planet Granite Belmont. Along the way earn bonus points during extra challenges and fun mini games. Planet Granite provides the snacks, the drinks, the venue, the staff support, and the prizes. 



Cost of participation is $50/participant. Cost includes food and drinks for the duration of the event, and all $50 goes straight to the ASCA!
