On May 13th, 47 of Planet Granite’s climbing team headed over to Berkeley Ironworks for the Sport and Speed Regional Championships and they did great! Of our 47 climbers, 28 qualified to climb at Divisionals in June! After that, we expect a good number to be going on to Nationals in July! To top it off, Planet Granite won the Sport Team Championship AND the Speed Team Championship! Check out our results on USA Climbing’s website here!
