From the Pond to the Ocean
The Ground UP climbing team travelled from the pond to the ocean this past weekend as they headed to Minneapolis to participate in one of the largest climbing competitions in the midwest, Vertical Endeavors "Jug or Not" event. All 11 team members, 4 of the coaches, and one team parent ended up challenging themselves against the massive 60+ foot walls and extraordinarily deep field of competitors. The kids all did fabulously well and exemplified our team rules - they had fun, climbed hard enough to fall, and were supportive of each other. In fact, they were the most vocally supportive group in attendance and their voices were often heard carrying through the massive facility as they cheered each other on. As a coach I couldn't be more proud. Well done team! Check out Photos of the event HERE.
