Climb 100 Routes For 100 Years

The Hoofer Mountaineering Club of Wisconsin, is having a contest this year to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Devils Lake State Park. Details here. Details on the club  here.

“We have three categories of climbing challenge:  top-roping, bouldering, and lead climbing.  If you are feeling really ambitious, enter all three!  Open to anyone who climbs.

The challenge is to climb 100 different routes during 2011.  Participants should log their climbs (date & route name) and report them to us.  Those who complete the challenge will receive some sort of recognition (the details have not been worked out yet; check back here later ).  If you would like us to chart your progress, send us your partial list.

For those who enjoy more competition, we will recognize the three individuals in each category with the most impressive 100-climb list.  (Scoring will be based on Swartling & Mayer’s Climber’s Guide to Devil’s Lake.”
