SBSX IS HERE! REGISTER FOR THE SEASON TODAY!

SBSX

We’re psyched to invite climbers everywhere to SBSX!

The Spot Bouldering Series is all about having a great time climbing and competing with friends old and new. The walls at The Spot get stripped clean and we present you with 40 brand-new awesome comp problems for your climbing pleasure. Along the way we have great music, epic raffles, and plenty of good food and drinks. Before the finals for the pros we always have a cool special event to watch like parkour, slacklining, dynos or black lights at our signature Psychedelia.

Being the tenth season of our Spot Bouldering Series we wanted to do something special. So we teamed up with the great Hunter Damiani of Olmec Apparel on this year’s alien theme, and he created the sickest SBS artwork yet!

JOE’S VALLEY FUNDRAISER – OVER $3600 RAISED!

Wednesday July 30th: Joes Valley Fundraiser at The Spot

JOE’S VALLEY NEEDS YOUR CASH!
Step Up CO, Let’s Help UT Pay For The Pottys

The event went great and we raised over $3600!
CLICK HERE FOR THE WINNERS OF THE EXTENDED RAFFLE

Have you ever climbed at Joe’s? How about any of your friends?

Being one of the most popular bouldering areas in the U.S., Joe’s Valley receives many thousands of climber visits every year. To service all the human waste that comes from those visitors there are just two port-a-pottys. For the past six years the Salt Lake Climbers Alliance has paid up to $2,500 each year to maintain them. There also is a push to install a permanent toilet, and the process begins with a $13,000 land assessment. To pull all that off this year, we still need to raise $4,600. Since Colorado climbers are a large percentage of the traffic at Joe’s, it’s time for us to step up and help out. That’s why the Boulder Climbing Community spear-headed this event.

And that’s where YOU come in.

To help, all you need to do is join us at The Spot the evening of Wednesday, July 30th. We will be hosting a huge outdoor gear sale as well as multimedia presentations from Jason Kehl, Jon Glassberg (Louder Than 11), Peter Beal and others. For a modest entrance fee you’ll get drinks (Avery beer or lemonade), food (burrito or pizza), a raffle ticket (over $5,000 of stuff!) and that great feeling inside knowing you helped out.

PLANNING TO ATTEND? TELL US ON FACEBOOK!

WHEN: Wednesday July 30th, doors open at 7pm
WHERE: The parking lot behind The Spot (east side)
COST: $12 includes drinks, food, raffle ticket! $20 includes Spot day pass!
WHO: You and all your friends!

Don’t forget to bring chairs, blankets or crashpads for seating in a parking lot.

AND BRING EXTRA CASH to help Joe’s! Only $20 gets you an “arms length” of extra raffle tickets to increase your odds in the $5000 raffle! And we’re hosting a HUGE gear sale (10% of all sales go to Joes!):

  • BRING YOUR OWN GEAR TO SELL! 10% goes to Joes! Bring your used gear (with your name and prices on each piece if possible) and we’ll put it on the table and try to sell it for you. Doors open for gear consignors at 6p and it is advised to arrive early before main doors open at 7p.
  • GEAR Movement is offering 70% off MSRP on tons of Mammut gear and more
  • Wilderness Exchange will be offering deals on a bunch of great inventory
  • Others… contact us if you want to show up with a table to sell stuff!

DID WE MENTION THE JOE’S THEME MINI COMP? Our ace setters will present you with a handful of problems modeled after actual classic Joe’s Valley boulder problems. For $5 you get to enter the mini comp, and for every problem you send you’ll get an entry in a raffle for a pair of LaSportiva shoes! Best of all, the cash all goes to Joe’s!
