American Bouldering Series 15, Feb. 21-22, 2014

The American Bouldering Series (ABS) 15 will be airing live this weekend February 21-22, 2014 via the fine folks at Louder Than 11!  Last year was the first live airing for LT11 and they did a superb job. If you tuned in last year, you know it will be another intense showdown!  Beware though, watching will cause hand sweating and a strong desire to climb.

Last years Men's and Women's champs (Woods and Puccio) will look to keep reigning supreme while other tough competitors are looking to make a grab for the top spot.  Here on the East Coast, the open finals will be airing at 9:30 PM (check it out here at where some intense action will be taking place.  I only hope this year's winners will get something to stand on so Pete Ward's (one of last year's stellar commentators!) tallness won't dwarf them.  Check out the trailer below for ABS 15!

Look for Connecticut native Galina Parfenov to make a strong showing this year as she competes in her second year at the national event!
