Attention Southwest Montana: The 11th installment of Spire Climbing Center’s annual bouldering extravaganza, FULL GRAVITY DAY, is scheduled for November 5, 2011. FGD is the LARGEST bouldering event in the northern Rockies, hands-down! Since its inception, FGD has been a fun and exciting event for climbers of all ages and abilities. FGD is com-petition, community, and camaraderie.
Sign up for the competition or go simply to watch the athletes defy gravity on steep bouldering walls. Registration opens at 9am so get there early. There are 2 heats, plus a surprise activity at 5pm (even we don’t know what it is!).
Full Gravity Day is also the largest fundraiser of the year for Bozeman based non-profit TOUCH THE SKY, whose mission is to get youth outdoors through climbing. www.touchtheskymt.org/
