2016 Results: Overall Results | Discipline Results
On July 29, 2017the PRG proudly announces the return of the Sun Burn, the only event of its kind…for our 10th year!
The feel of an outdoor comp, in air-conditioned comfort! Come and climb over 80 of the best problems or routes in:
Slab Climbing – Dynos – Top-Outs – Routes – Bouldering
What is your specialty? Do you have a passion for heights? You can try the Route comp! Do you like to throw for every hold you can? Then, go for the Dyno comp! Are you into scrabbling your way onto the top of gritty, sloping, body-scraping boulders? Then, the Top-out comp is for you! Whatever your poison, the Sun Burn has an event designed just for you!
Do you love, as we do, everything about this sport? You can compete in all five “disciplines” and be the overall king or queen of the Burn! Add to this awards for every category, a Cash Purse for Open competitors, raffle prizes, great music and a fantastic barbecue, and you have the coolest climbing event of the summer.
Get out of the heat and humidity…and GET A BURN!
BTW, did we mention FOOD, MUSIC & AWARDS?
