Gretna Outdoor Bouldering Comp

2012 Gretna Boulder Competition Poster

The 2nd Annual Gretna Bouldering Comp is Saturday, November 17 (rain date Nov. 18). It is an outdoor comp. Pre-regisration is only $20 and guarantees you a t-shirt and a burrito. If you wait until the day of the comp, its $25 and you will NOT get a t-shirt. It is not a USA Climbing sanctioned event but they promise great prizes, a new mini-guide for the competitors, new areas, a shoe demo and more importantly, plain diabase filled FUN. 


Shirts almost as cool as the Midnight Burn ;-)

It will be scored by difficulty with categories for prizes: kids under 12, beginner, intermediate, advanced, masters 35+.  First, second and third in both mens and womens for all categories...Everyone has a great chance to win a prize!

Registration opens at 8 am , Climbing starts at 9 am and ends around 4pm. Bring your own crash pad.




Comp Info at http://www.facebook.com/gretnaboulderingcommittee

This event is geared toward raising funds to be used at the park for bouldering needs as well as raising awareness of good ethics for bouldering at Governor Dick Park. 100% of the proceeds will go back into the park.

Pre-registration ends Sunday, November 04, 2012 at 11:45 PM ET
http://www.athletereg.com/events/register.asp?EventID=122




Description froMountainProject.com:
Mount Gretna offers excellent bouldering inside Governor Dick’s Nature Preserve. Composed of groups of diabase boulders strewn throughout a dense forest, the area can be tricky to navigate without a guide or guidebook but once mastered it takes just minutes to reach the nearest boulders. 

Getting There

From the PA Turnpike take Exit 266 (Lebanon/Lancaster) and turn Right after toll booths onto PA 72 (Lebanon Road). Travel approximately 2 miles then turn Right onto Cider Press Road. Continue to Stop sign and turn Right onto Pinch Road. Follow Pinch Road into nature preserve and park at Clarence Schock education center on Right just after State Game Lands sign. 

Governor Dick's Nature Preserve:
The park is comprised of 1105 acres of woodland in Mount Gretna, Lebanon County, Pennsylvania and is presently managed by a co-trusteeship of representatives of the Clarence Schock Foundation and the Lebanon County Commissioners to provide the use of the land as a public park and playground while maintaining and preserving it as a forest or woodland in accordance with the terms of the Clarence Schock Deed of Trust and to preserve the natural resources of the Park.
