GEAR:30 was at the Gear Demo for their public debut.
Many vendors showed up with gear to demo, including Mad Rock, Scarpa, Black Diamond, Red Chili, and Revv NRG. It was a fun time.
At the Boulder Comp the next morning.
We had a strong female showing. There weren't necessarily a lot of females that climbed, but they were all strong.
Curt and Denver helped organize and judge the comp. Curt is a huge help every year, marking all the routes on each of the boulders with chalk. This year it rained over night, so he had to remark each of the routes early Saturday morning.

Shane Bryson. This traverse is rated at a V8 or so. Shane went on to take first place in the comp for the open category.
Eric Zsciesche came in 2nd place in the open category. He always brings a lot of positive energy to these events.
Staff from The Front Ogden climbing gym taught a children's bouldering clinic.
Peter Croft taught a climbing clinic/Q&A session.
It was super fun to have Peter out. Later that night he gave a slideshow presentation and told some great stories. It was a really good time.
