Climbers compete for prizes at park

  • Wednesday, February 20, 2013

On Saturday, March 16, James Island County Park will host the largest outdoor climbing competition in the Southeast - the Palmetto Pump & USA Climbing Competition. Each year, the competition attractions climbers from throughout the region, all scaling the park’s 50-foot tall climbing wall that features more than 4,500 square feet of climbing space.

This nationally sanctioned event is designed for climbers of all ages and abilities and no competition experience is necessary. Categories are determined by age and gender. Sign up today - space is limited.

Not a climber but interested in watching? The competition is free for spectators with the general $1 park admission fee. Come witness this show of strength, balance and endurance from some of the best climbers in the region.

Registration is from 8- 9 a.m.; the competition will take place from 9:30 a.m. through 2:30 p.m. Competitor registration on or after March 1 is $45. Participants can register in advance and save $5. Participants not registered with USA Climbing will pay a $5 day membership fee to compete.
