Welcome to the Triple Crown

What is the Triple Crown?

The goal of the Triple Crown is twofold. First and foremost, the mission is to raise funds for two organizations dedicated to maintaining climbers' access: the Southeastern Climbers' Coalition and The Carolina Climbers' Coalition. These two organizations have been instrumental in the acquisition of land for the climbing community, in a region that is riddled with access issues. Secondly, this unique event will once again provide a tremendous opportunity for vendors to promote the sport of bouldering, which has quickly become the focus of the ever growing climbing community.

How do I participate?

Triple Crown is a series of bouldering events at three of the premier boulderfields in the Southeast. The series kicks off in the fall beginning with Hound Ears in Boone, NC, moves on to Stone Fort in Chattanooga, TN and then concludes at Horse Pens-40 in Steele, AL. This year, Rumbling Bald has been added as a fourth event! The 2014 dates for each event are set for:

  • October 4: Hound Ears
  • October 25: Stone Fort
  • November 22: Horse Pens 40
  • December 13: Rumbling Bald

You can register for any of the individual comps. See the registration page for detailed information. Register as early as possible, space is limited and this event fills up FAST!
