THE EARTH TREKS ROC COMP PRESENTED BY MOUNTAIN HARDWEAR

KICKS OFF THE 2010 UNIFIED BOULDERING CHAMPIONSHIPS PRO TOUR

The top climbers worldwide will compete for $11,000 in cash
and points towards the first ever UBC Pro Tour Championship

Timonium, MD (February 22, 2010) – Earth Treks Climbing Centers, Mountain Hardwear and the Unified Bouldering Championships are proud to announce the first event on the 2010 UBC Pro Tour; The Earth Treks Roc Comp, Presented by Mountain Hardwear April 23 & 24, 2010. The 2010 Roc Comp will span two days of climbing and will host climbers ranging from the top pros in the world to beginners psyched to check out their first comp. The event will be held at two of the top climbing gyms in North America; Earth Treks Columbia and Earth Treks Timonium, MD.

At the first Earth Treks Roc Comp since 2004, some of the top climbers worldwide, including Chris Sharma, Lisa Rands and Paul Robinson will compete for an $11,000 cash purse as well as cumulative individual point rankings towards the overall UBC Pro Tour Championship.

Representing one of the top pro events ever held on the East coast, the 2003 and 2004 Roc Comps set a high bar for competitions that the whole crew at Earth Treks is eager to improve on. “Since our last Roc Comp, we’ve been in mourning,” says Earth Treks Founder, Chris Warner. “The excitement that the Roc Comp brought to our staff, our community and professional climbers was so rewarding. After distracting ourselves for the last few years with opening new gyms and expanding old ones, we’re ready to get back into the party.”

“Ever since Earth Treks opened, it has been known as one of the top competition venues worldwide and we are pumped up to partner with Mountain Hardwear and roll out the first ever UBC Pro Tour event with them,” said Pete Ward of NE2C Productions. “The future of pro climbing is in huge scale events featuring the top climbers, the top venues and top shelf production value. The Earth Treks Roc Comp is guaranteed to deliver all of the above. If you’re north of the equator and west of Istanbul, you won’t want to miss it!”

Featuring spectacular action, the top pros, a full sponsor village hosting the top brands in the industry and something for everyone, the Roc Comp is the first can’t miss event of the season. “If you can’t out-climb them, you might as well host them!” says Warner, (who will conveniently be climbing Makalu, the world’s fifth tallest boulder, during the Roc Comp).

The 2010 Earth Treks Roc Comp takes place April 23 & 24.Spectators: free all day Friday; free during semi-finals Saturday; $20 for Finals and After Party on Saturday.
