What better way to spend a Saturday than climbing, drinking beer, enjoying food, and winning awesome prizes?  

Friction Series – Presented by Petzl, is Planet Granite’s annual roped climbing comp hosted at our Bay Area gyms! 

Our routesetters will be putting up top rope and lead climbs from 5.7 to 5.13+ so climbers of all abilities can test their skills and get raffle tickets for prizes! Better yet – it’s free for members and only $15 for non-members!

Belmont Friction Series is Saturday, Feb. 11, 2017 and registration opens at 10am! 

After Belmont, San Francisco holds their comp on March, 25th and finally, Sunnyvale will hold their comp PLUS the Series Finals on May 6th! 

New this year – Each Gym will host an Onsight Final! Cheer on the top climbers (or compete yourself!) as they battle for the top spot at their gym and a chance to win a cash purse in Sunnyvale where we’ll be hosting the Series Final. Plus, we’re crowning a Series Champion based on points across all three comps!

Your Saturday will be jammed packed with fun while you climb, play games, enjoy a cold one, and cheer other climbers on!
