Climbing competition rocks

The third annual Homer Climbing Competition was a rockin good time and an on-site success as a fundraiser for HoWL (Homer Wilderness Leadership) on March 17. Lots of kids and adults, locals and Anchoraguans scampered up the Bay Club wall, competing for prizes, trophies and fame. Everyone had a great time and HoWL raised a bit of cash to start off its summer season.

We couldnt have done it without our fabulous local sponsors who threw down for event T-shirts, hosting out-of-town competitors, prizes and much more. Our volunteers were amazing: judging, timing, belaying, announcing, route-setting, and doing everything in between. And of course, we do it all for the climbers, because thats what its all about. Thank you to everyone who participated in the third annual Homer Climbing Competition. Rock on,

Libby B. Veasey, executive director
