USAC Youth Regional Bouldering Competition


Get ready for the 2017 USA Climbing Youth Regional (Rust Belt) Bouldering Comp! This is a huge, all-day event that will force us to be closed to the public. Although you won't be able to climb, use the fitness area, or take a yoga class, we do FULLY ENCOURAGE you to come in and spectate!

If you're a youth competitor and you're interested in joining the fun, please go HERE to check your eligibility and to register. Please note that you MUST BE PRE-REGISTERED to compete and that if you do so on or before Wednesday 11/22 you'll get a complimentary t-shirt!

HOTEL INFORMATION: In the event you're traveling from afar, we've partnered up with two nearby hotels to make things easier. SpringHill Suites and Holiday Inn Express held some discounted rooms for us, but space is limited, so don't delay! SpringHill Suites even has some rooms reserved through Sunday night if you're looking to hang in the 'Burgh for a while longer. Our apologies for the relatively high prices, but the Steelers and the Ravens bring in quite a large crowd!
