There are three races held in Crested Butte, CO which determines who the National Champions will be. A vertical race, individual race, and teams race. The fastest combined time takes the title. Many fast races showed up for this years event. The racers made their way up and down the technical "Guide's Ridge" using ascenders and backup carabiners. Weather conditions were very cold and windy during the individual race, but then the sun came out and we enjoyed CO bluebird for the teams race on the final day. Fun was had by all.
Special thanks to CB Mountain Resort, CB Ski Patrol, Elk Mountain Events, Gore-Tex, LaSportiva, CAMP, Dr. Griggs, Montonya's, and all the volunteers for putting on a great event.
