The Western Colorado Climbers Coalition held their ROBO comp this past weekend. The competitions goal was to bring the community together for a fun night of bouldering, costumes and dancing to live music. The sponsors who participated gave everyone a great prizes through the raffle and for those that won their divisions. Folks that didn't show up regretted it because they say or heard how much fun everyone had and that the point of the day was not competing with others but having fun with others while climbing. There was no ego or chest puffing, just encouragement and smiles.
Climbing under the black lights made everything glow and the Grand Junction Climbing Center did an amazing job setting 80 boulder problems and turning the gym into a black light zone. I found that I lost my balance while trying to climb but that there was always someone there to spot me when I fell.
My wife and son (8 months old) and I had a blast checking out the costumes crawling and climbing the boulder problems.
