1st Street Bouldering Competition
Boulderers and spectators were treated, once again, to another spectacular competition at Touchstone's bouldering-only gym, Touchstone San Jose. 88 competitors touched down on forty new problems, live music by DJ Max, pizza and beer, prizes and a raffle, in a crowded, but very friendly atmosphere. Boasting the highest bouldering walls of all the Touchstone gyms, the comp problems were expectedly challenging and fun.
Thanks go out to the setting crew: Craig McClenahan (Touchstone Head Route Setter), Al Liu (San Jose Manager), Art Balaoro and Michaell Abell (San Jose Staff). And thanks go out to the rest of the San Jose Staff, and all the boulderers who showed up knowing they were in for another gem of a competition in downtown San Jose.
