Power Struggle 7 Bouldering Competition--CANCELLED DUE TO WINTER SNOWSTORM NEMO

DUE TO WINTER STORM NEMO, POWER STRUGGLE 7 HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL SUNDAY FEBRUARY 10 AT 1:00 PM.

Power Struggle is back for the 7th time!  The raddest, baddest, toughest bouldering comp in New England  is set to hit again on Saturday February 9th!

Competitors from around the New England area will make the trip to Prime Climb to crimp, pinch, slap and pull on some plastic in hopes of winning some money and prizes!  If you have never been to a bouldering comp and have never witnessed a finals round, this comp is a MUST see!  The power, intensity and heart that these competitors pour out onto the wall is an amazing event to watch!

This bouldering comp is not just about who is the strongest, it's about who has the mental toughness to persevere through the problems set forth from the minds of amazing setters that work for Prime Climb.  Competitor's fingertips will become raw, their forearms will become fatigued, and their toes will become cramped inside the climbing shoes, but the excitement and fun that these competitors carry with them will not fade.  At the end of the day everyone leaves knowing they gave it their all and had a blast!

There will be a Men's and Women's division with problems set for beginner, intermediate, advanced, and open (pro level) level climbers to tackle.  Prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd  place of each division with a cash prize for the open division.  Men's and Women's open level qualifiers will compete later in the day for a chance to be the champion of the Power Struggle 7!

As a climber and competitor who has participated in past Power Struggle events, I recommend anyone with an interest in competitive sports or climbing to come and compete or just come out to watch an awesome event unfold down to the finals!
