We are overwhelmed in a sea of stoke! San Francisco’s Friction Series 2017 is one for the record books. With piles of prize goodies, 300 t-shirts given out, an entire assembly line of food, and nearly 500 attendees, Friction Series was literally jam-packed this year. The music was bumpin’ and the walls were thumpin’ with an intense display of competition and comradery.

We loved seeing all of your beautiful faces.

And of course, your try-hard faces too!

Not to mention, we had a bunch of local vendors come out to join the festivities, donate prizes, and hand out treats to our crowd. A huge thank you to the rad guys and gals that kept us pumped during the comp!

With an incredible team of setters, we were able to have some super rad climbs that had competitors psyched all day long. We’ve got mad love for our incredibly talented setting team. If you see them around, be sure to thank a setter for your favorite climbs.

You all crushed it, and we can’t help but brag about our awesome community. Without such a rockin’ family, such as yourself, we wouldn’t have been able to make this event possible. We can’t thank you all enough for coming out!
