The Beta

The 3rd Annual Urban Legends will be held on Earth Day, April 22nd. Urban Ascent will be closing early on Wednesday, April 19th at 8pm and will be closed until Saturday. Spectators are welcome all day on Saturday and are especially encouraged to come to the Finals Round (see schedule below).

All ages and ability levels are welcome and encouraged to compete! This competition is a "redpoint" format, which means that all competitors have 3 hours to climb routes of their choosing. The harder the route, the more points are allocated, and the top 3 routes count towards a competitor's final score. Climbers are scored against others of the same gender in their category.
