TRIPLE CROWN! - Matt Ginley

TRIPLE CROWN! - Matt Ginley
September 26, 2012 -  Matt Ginley    

It’s that time of year again! Fall has finally arrived in the Southeast – mornings and nights are actually chilly, humidity levels have reached a bearable level and will only continue to drop with the temperatures, and leaves are showing signs of color.  However one of the biggest signs that “the season” is about to kick off down in this neck of the woods is: the TRIPLE CROWN BOULDERING SERIES!

This annual event is one of the largest of its kind in the United States and every year it raises thousands of dollars for the Southeastern Climbers Coalition as well as the Carolina Climbers Coalition. If you live in the South or have spent time down here climbing, you are most likely well aware of the endless amount of rock we have to climb. If this is the case, then you’re probably also aware of the countless land access issues that exist in this region. By being part of the Triple Crown Bouldering series you are doing your part to keep access open at many popular climbing areas in this region:  every single one of the dollars raised during Triple Crown go directly back to keeping access open to your local crags!

As usual the Triple Crown kicks off at Hound Ears in Boone, North Carolina. This event starts on the evening of Friday October 5th and runs through the evening of Saturday October 6th. Make sure you come by the Five Ten booth up at the boulder field the morning of the comp to test out some awesome new models – we will have a full demo fleet containing some of the current hottest models. Also, this year Five Ten will be hosting a awesome raffle on Saturday evening after the event.  Here’s the beta:

’The Top 10 From Five Ten’

Ten pairs will be on display……….$1 raffle tickets can be purchased and placed in to a raffle for your shoe of choice. Bring a wad of dollar bills to participate and increase your odds of winning!! Two pairs of Five Ten will be given away!! All proceeds to benefit The Carolina Climbers’ Coalition. So make sure you get some tickets for your chance to win big!
