Gramicci Sponsors Aiguille Rock Climbing Center's ABS 13 Competition
Results from a great weekend

AGOURA HILLS, Calif., October 17th, 2011— Gramicci, the legendary climbing apparel brand with NPT- Natural Performance Technology ™was happy to help the Aiguille Rock Climbing Center's ABS 13 Competition with added gear to give! The competition took place in Longwood, Florida on October 1st. The competition offered talented climbers of all ages to participate, from the youngest in the Youth-D division of USA climbers to the Masters competitors (45+).

Eager climbers took on the challenge of 50 brand new boulder problems set by national route setter Mark Mercer as well as David Carmona, Aubrey Wingo, Eugene Hoberg, Jackson Clemmer and Jesse Falcon.

Greeted with the first cool weather of the season, Aiguille welcomed its competitors first thing in the morning to pick up their Gramicci goodies, other sponsor items, and comp shirts, designed by Guillermo Casanova (http://guillermo-casanova.com/), and to start strategizing their climbs for the day. Rules were announced and the climbing began along with musical motivation from Aiguille's DJ, JSHIH. The walls were littered with color from hold designers E-Grips, Rock Candy, Project and many more - some brand new out of the box for the climbers to test for the first time.

“In addition to the climbers, the gym was filled with many who were not climbing; supportive parents from Team Aiguille and other gyms cheering on their kids, volunteer spotters from the Aiguille member family and Aiguille staff members making sure the comp ran smoothly. There were flashes and falls, sends and sore tips; overall, a fantastic show of athletic performance, good sportsmanship, and well-executed competition,” explains Aubrey Wingo, Membership and Program Director of Aiguille Rock Climbing Center, describing the positive atmosphere at the event.

Jim Norton, the regional representative for USA Climbing, tallied the scores while the tired competitors waited patiently for the results, and raffle prizes provided by the sponsors were given away to several lucky winners. Following the raffle the winners of the competition were announced, receiving their very own ABS USA Climbing ribbon and compilation prize packs from the sponsors. Top awards received their own Gramicci shirts, Bluewater climbing rope, Mad Rock Climbing shoes, Climb On! gift set or even a free month membership at Aiguille. Every one of the winners are now also proud owners of their very own La Sportiva Coozie and Yowie by Outdoor Technology as well as many other great prizes.

Winners will be announced soon on Aiguille Rock Climbing Center's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/aiguilleclimbing) and USA Climbing's website (www.usaclimbing.org).
