2017 Dominion Riverrock Bouldering & Speed Competitions

Dominion Riverrock Bouldering & Speed
What better way to celebrate the Richmond riverfront than at the nation’s largest outdoor sports and music festival? This year, the Boulder Bash and Speed Climbing competitions are returning to Dominion Riverrock. Both events will feature some of the top pro climbers in the country as they ascend a man-made, 20-foot-high bouldering cave. This cage, visible to spectators from all sides, has been called the "most unique bouldering wall ever constructed" and was custom-built for Dominion Riverrock. During the competition, men and women will be forced to max-out their strength and agility to climb up and out of the cage.

Check out the Dominion Riverrock festival preview:



The action will be LIVE only on FloClimbing.com beginning with the qualifiers on Friday night and continuing through Sunday night with the Speed Climbing Finals!
