Triple Crown kicks off Oct. 1 with Hounds Ears

Sep. 19th 2011

Fall is an awesome time in the Southeast. Combine cooler temps and brilliant fall colors with stellar bouldering and you get the Triple Crown Bouldering Series, which kicks off in two weeks on Oct. at Hounds Ears, near Boone, N.C.

A three-event series, the Triple Crown has a interesting history that’s intertwined with climbing access, one of the many reasons SCARPA is stoked to be a sponsor again this year. (If you’re attending any of the events, watch for SCARPA rock shoe giveaways during the goings-on.)

If you’re not familiar with the three venues in the Triple Crown, check out this video for some visuals at the first spot, Hounds Ears. Event judge, local, and preschool teacher Haley Waldrop shows how it’s done.
