Alex Johnson's Midwest Shoe Demo

 
Alex Johnson's Midwest Shoe Demo
 
October 31, 2010 -  Alex Johnson    
 

On October 16th, Minnesota was home to the biggest backyard bouldering competition in the country. The competition was held to raise funds for the Minnesota Bouldering Co-Op. You can find out more about the Minnesota Climbing Co-Op here. Over 80 people came with their crashpads to climb, eat, hang out and show their support for the new local business. The competition officially began at 1pm, and motivation was so high that it carried on into the night.

 

During the day, Fritz and I hosted a Five Ten shoe demo, showing off the new Quantums, Blue Team Shoes, and the Women's Anasazi LV. It was a huge success! Every pair of Quantums we had were out on the wall the entire day. Overall consensus: two thumbs up! The Midwest approves.

The backyard bouldering fundraiser was a ton of fun, and it helped raise money and awareness about the new Minnesota Bouldering Co-Op, which is planning its Grand Opening in January 2011.
