6 Hours of Planet Rock Heck

September 14 @ 8:00 pm - September 15 @ 2:00 am

Our 2nd annual team endurance comp
6 Hours Planet Rock Heck
Saturday, Sept 14 | Doors at 7:00, climbing begins at 8:00pm
Sunday, September 15 | climbing ends at 2:00am

Why an endurance comp?
Over the years, our members have participated in 24HHH – one of the most grueling and demanding climbing competitions out there. 24 hours isn’t for everyone – but maybe 6 hours is. Grab your favorite belay buddy, choose an awesome team name (and outfit), then sign up to compete in our 6HPRH citizens comp!

Test your skills, stamina and self
Your team has 6 hours to complete as many climbs as you can! Choose to climb a route either top rope or lead, but be aware that any route climbed top rope cannot be later climbed as a lead route. Climb the same route up to 3 times, either in succession or with breaks in between. Team members do not have to climb the same routes as their partner.

An hour of lights out climbing gives you and your teammate the most “realistic” outdoor climbing experience possible. Both climber AND belayer need headlamps to participate.

Points & Scoring
Earn points for each successful completion of a route. Show control on the final hold and you get the points. You and your teammate do NOT have to climb the same routes in order to compete. Points are added together for a cumulative team score. Winners are based on team results – keep your partner pumped and crushing the entire night!

Climbing is all about the journey. But prizes do make a great destination…
We love our sponsors, and we know you do too! Climb in 6 Hours of Planet Rock Heck and win swag, giveaways and gear from some of our favorites.

Prizes are awarded to teams from each of these categories:
Most Individual Routes Climbed: top rope & lead* This is the ONLY individual award
Most Team Routes Climbed: top rope & lead
Top Female Team
Top Male Team
Top Coed Team
Best Team Spirit
