Triple Crown Bouldering Series
Triple Crown is a series of bouldering events at three of the premier boulderfields in the Southeast. The series kicks off in the fall beginning with Hound Ears in Boone, NC, moves on to Stone Fort in Chattanooga, TN and then concludes at Horse Pens-40 in Steele, AL.
The goal of the Triple Crown is twofold. First and foremost, the mission is to raise funds for two organizations dedicated to maintaining climbers' access: the Southeastern Climbers' Coalition and The Carolina Climbers' Coalition. These two organizations have been instrumental in the acquisition of land for the climbing community, in a region that is riddled with access issues. Secondly, this unique event will once again provide a tremendous opportunity for vendors to promote the sport of bouldering, which has quickly become the focus of the ever growing climbing community.
The Triple Crown website is a well-designed, easy to use, responsive website. It is content rich in that it provides all the competition details, update information, social media content, as well as photos and videos - both professional and from competition attendees. By allowing users to upload their own media content, it has taken some of the better features of the few good climbing media websites and incorporated them into a competition specific event website. Most of the venues for the three comps also have cell service, allowing attendees to use the website and upload media directly from the event.
