The Portland Boulder Rally is an amazing climbing competition. It is the largest single day event in the nation and this year it is putting up a $10,000 cash purse to the top 5 male and female competitors. This is the kind of incentive that is driving more than 20 pro climbers (along with most of Portland’s climbing community) to descend upon The Circuit Bouldering Gym this weekend. This year there will be 400 competitors, all competing in the Circuit’s newest and largest gym in Tigard, OR.

The competition will take place on Saturday October 4th, 2014, with Louder Than 11 live streaming the finals over the internet beginning at 6:15pm PST. Make sure to head over to PortlandBoulderRally.com to watch the battle for a share of $10,000 unfold. It’s gonna be good!
