Last weekend we all got together on a rainy Portland Saturday for our third annual PDX Pulldown, and what a blast it was. The community gathered late in the morning and began to sign up for the competition. The crowd quickly grew, and so did the psyche. Once open climbing had started we quickly saw some of Portland's strongest climbers top some of our hardest routes, entertaining to say the least - a nod to what we would see in our Onsight Finals! But there wasn't only climbing to be had. With amazing sponsors from Mountain Hardware to The North Face there were plenty of tables for competitors and spectators alike to check out, and grab some swag.

BY THE NUMBERS

The setters worked their buns off during the week leading up to the Pulldown to ensure that there were fun, dynamic, varied and challenging routes up for everybody. Thanks guys! With 25 brand new routes varying in grades from 5.8 to 5.12+, there was something for everyone. We are so psyched to have had over 300 competitors, and we hope you had as much fun as we did!
