Nigerian Brothers Playing at Touchstone Comp and Anniversary Party!
This Saturday, August 28, the Nigerian Brothers will be playing during the first of the Touchstone Bouldering Series Comps.
The Nigerian brothers, led by Nigerian master musician, Ken Okulolo, have deep roots in African folk and highlife music. Their beats will be played from noon to three pm and will be a great background for the people who want to crank during the first of the Touchstone Bouldering Series comps.
While the beats are being played, food and refreshments will be served as the comp marks the 10th anniversary of Berkeley Ironworks and Touchstone's 15th. There will be all kinds of great food supplied by Andy & Cindy's Thai. Not only will there be free samples of great bars like Kind Bars, and Clif Bar but Guyaki Organic Yerba Mate, and Bear Naked Granola will be providing food as well. For vegan athletes, and those who want a gluten free option, there will be food for them as well. For those that don't like any of those terrific options, there will be a lot of BIRTHDAY CAKE!
The standard seventy problems will be set by the Touchstone team of route setters. There will be approximately: 10 V0's, 10 V1's, 10 V2's, 10 V3's, 10 V4's, 8 V5's, 6 V6's, 4 V7's, 3 V8's, 2 V9's 1 V10, 1 V11 as well as an onsight final with three problems for the top five men and women. For those who want some great beta on how to prepare better for a comp, check out Natasha Barnes' comments in a brief interview with the Touchstone Blog.
Come by from 11-5 pm to check out the comp and then see the onsight final at the end. Also there will be a rad raffle with a number of great prizes and all proceeds going to the Access Fund. A list of the prizes is coming soon.
