This past weekend our youth climbing team, the BKBeasts, traveled to the Dark Horse competition series up in Everett, MA for a bouldering competition at MetroRock.

We stopped by Brooklyn Boulders Somerville on the way there – transportation thanks to Zipcar (pssst.. members, did you know that you get Zipcar benefits?).

Zip car benefits. Taking you to BKBS - where Brooklyn members climb for free!

Congratulations to BKBeasts Arabella & Ruhi, who placed 2nd and 3rd respectively in the Youth Category. Georgia Banks also made it to the Open Category placing 8th, competing against the impressive Alex Puccio, who won the comp.

BK climber Ashima Shiraishi also killed it, placing 4th in the Open Category.

Next up: ABS Nationals this and next weekend – wish the BKBeasts luck! The workshop is being set especially for their comp preparation. Also going: Adaptive Climbing Group members with coach Luke. And if you ever wondered who is responsible for the music behind Dark Horse & ABS Nationals, meet BKB member Mike Wideberg!
