We hope everyone who joined us for Friction Series at Belmont had a great time on Saturday! See you in a few weeks at SF on March 24th!

While it was a beautiful day outside, we had even more beautiful climbs inside! The setters outdid themselves and set all week to give us a range of climbs that included dynos, fancy holds, and awesome sequences. Our vendors started arriving and had some great games to play, awesome gear to check out and yummy snacks to keep people energized.  Fort Point provided beer and, after climbing for hours, people were able to relax with some pizza, snacks and cold drinks.


We finished off the day with a great Onsight Finals session where the top scoring men and women in our open category squared off for the chance to climb at our Onsight Series Final in Sunnyvale and a giant raffle with great prizes courtesy of our sponsors!
