Still Going Since 1996
Join us for the Midnight Burn October 30, 2021. The first event in the Burn Bouldering Series.
For the past 25 years, the Midnight Burn has been a staple for climbers on the east coast. It all started when a few local members wanted to see who could send the hardest climbs on Halloween. They sessioned everything in the gym. Traversing from one climb to the next they climbed all night, past midnight in fact, until their fingertips bled and could send no longer. And thus the tradition was born, the Midnight Burn.
Dress Up! Come climb with us in your spookiest costume. After all, what could be more fun than sending climbs dressed up as spider-man? When climbing is over, head down the runway in our costume contest. Winner gets a prize!
How it works
You’ll have three hours to climb as much as humanly possible in a super fun amped-up climbing session with all of your friends.
Each climb is worth points based on the difficulty of the climb. Your five highest point value climbs are compared to everyone else’s in your category.
The Novice category grades start at VB, so anyone can participate, even if you’ve never competed before!
Get excited and inspired! At the end of each event, there will be a Finals Round for the Open category: 16 competitors duke it out to see who can make it to the top of three excruciatingly hard boulders displaying their strength and expertise. Come watch, we have beer!
Don’t want to compete but still wanna see the action? We’re looking for volunteers to Judge the Event, and as a thank you, you’ll get a little kickback for helping us too.
