The first-ever competition to take place at the new Ground Up in Squamish went down on Jan. 9.
Familiar faces from the Tour de Bloc and CEC comp circuits took part at the gym’s inaugural event. Elan Jonas-McRae, who has been busy sending hard bouldering problems, came up with the win for the men.
Likewise, Allanah Yip, who has been climbing boulders down south, won for the women. For more on Ground Up, visit here.
