This weekend the Earth Treks Climbing Team is headed to Colorado Springs, CO to attend the 2014 American Bouldering Series (ABS) Youth Nationals. The Youth Nationals will be happening from February 28th through March 2nd.

The qualifiers are this Friday. The Semi-Finals will be on Saturday and the Finals this Sunday.

In preparation for the ABS Youth Nationals the ET Climbing team was able to practice on some great boulder problems set by some of our Maryland setters: Ward, Ryan and Charlie. We have a strong team heading out to Colorado and we will be updating the website, twitter, Facebook and our Instagram pages with photos, videos and much much more.

Team Earth Treks is nationally ranked and currently the first place team in the Capitol Region. The team meets three times a week. Tryouts are held up to two times per year.  Once in August at the start of the new season, and once in the Spring space permitting.Team Earth Treks will focus on strength, flexibility, mental toughness, and strategy. We train hard during practice and come in on our own to continue training.

If you are attending the ABS Nationals as a spectator tag #EarthTreks in your pics  and Twitter @TeamEarthTreks to share how the team is doing.  You can also follow us on in our Team Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/earthtreksclimbingteams
