On Saturday, climbers from Squamish and the Lower Mainland gathered at downtown’s Grand Wall Bouldering Co-operative for a friendly and social bouldering competition.
The volunteer-run event was held in an effort to unite community and raise funds and memberships for this non-profit climbing co-operative. The Co-op gave 10 per cent of profits and collected used climbing shoes for the non-profit “Climb and Conquer,” which strives to bring climbing into the lives of disadvantaged youth.
