Ladies, get ready to rock because Iron Maiden, MetroRock and Crux Crush’s first all-female bouldering competition, is just around the corner! Saturday, March 29th, ladies from across New England and as far away as Colorado and Texas, will descend upon MetroRock’s stage to try their hand at some of the best boulder problems in the land, set by members of the American Bouldering Series Nationals setting team as well as local lady setters. The goal of our event is not only to put all those months of winter training to the test, but to bring together the female climbing community for one rad event. No shirtless grunting dudes, or beta that dynos past your masterful crimp strength and delicate, balanced body positioning – just a bunch of psyched, supportive, and STRONG femme fatales – all vying to become THE IRON MAIDEN!

What do we mean by supportive? Think free mini post-climbing massages by a licensed massage therapist, physical therapist consults, and post-comp climbing specific yoga/stretches (and free Lululemon yoga mat give-away!). Add onto that chocolate, climber snacks, and more chocolate – because Taza Chocolate, Q’s Nuts, and Perfect Fuel Chocolate will all be there as part of our Vendor Maiden’s Fair, from 4-6pm, bringing together some of our favorite climbing, clothing, and snack vendors (a.k.a. functional, cute & yummy swag!).
To finish it all up – you get to see the strongest of the fair maidens battle it out during Finals, while you chillax with soda, beer and pizza! Expect to see some sweet prizes, thanks to our incredible event sponsors: Evolv, Mad Rock, La Sportiva, Mammut, New England ReSoul, Practical Climbing, Core Power, and ClimbOn.
Register online or the day of the comp. Dudes, parents, friends, and non-climber cheerleaders are all welcome! Hope to see you there!
