The Cliffs at Valhalla in New York is hosting Feats of Strength, their 7th annual “Mega Comp Throw-Down” this Saturday, February 25th. Tunes will be provided by Mon Voyage Neon and hundreds of climbers will compete on over 150 boulder problems for top honors. With $5,000 in prizes and give-aways and a $1,500 cash purse for the open division, you’ll be happy whether you’re there sending or on the sidelines nursing your flappers and tendonitis.
Gym comps are famous for pretty gnarly posters, and Feats of Strength may take the prize this year. Dan Yagmin designed this beauty, using “a combination of three traditional watercolor paintings composited within Adobe Photoshop. This is a technique I have been playing around with recently, and it allows for a lot of flexibility when producing the final image.”
Brooklyn Outfitters is hosting registration for the comp on their site here. If you sign up before the 23rd you’ll pay $35. Prizes include:
*Crash pads from Organic & Black Diamond
*Shoes from Scarpa, FiveTen, La Sportiva, Evolv
*Clothing from Verve, PrAna, Granit, Rock and Snow
*Swag from Revolution, The DRCC, Element Climbing, Climbing Magazine, Rock and Ice, Rock and Snow, Black Diamond, BigUp Productions, Petzl, ProBar, EMS and more…
