Comp de Bloc is a fun, community focused climbing competition at the University of Minnesota Climbing Gym. Join us for great routes, great people, and great prizes. The Comp will cater to climbers of all ability levels. Spectators are welcome.
Comp de Bloc is a redpoint format competition featuring bouldering, sport, and top rope climbing. Scores will be an accumulation of the top three scores for bouldering and the top two scores for roped climbing.
All prizes are given out in a door prize drawing. You don't need to win to win some great new gear!
