Rip & Grip Bulletin April 2017

Header April 17

Welcome to Vertically Inclined's Rip & Grip Bulletin for April 2017!

The April event was the finale for the Winter 2017 Rip & Grip Series and the culmination of 3 months of awesome climbing by everyone who came out.  Thank you to everyone who came out and climbed!  We really appreciate everyone coming out and participating in this version of the Rip & Grip.

The routesetting team was headed by Dan again this month with lots of support from Robin and the whole team of setters.  Dan has worked tirelessly in taking over the Rip & Grip Setting for this series and deserves a whole bunch of kudos. Thanks to everyone else who put in the time and effort to set problems for the whole series and especially for tonight's event..

Again we'd like to recognize the work that Justin has done in coordinating sponsors and prizes.  This has led to the highest value of prizes in Rip & Grip history so a big thanks goes to him.  As always, Cael and Seamus kept everyone and everything in line while Justin and Christine ran the Big Rocker and the Front Desk.

Thank you very much to all the sponsors of tonight's event.  Check out the featured problems brought to you by our Series and Event sponsors.  We appreciate their support and hope you can recognize the contributions that they have made to tonight's comp and the entire series.

We'll see you at the Rip & Grip  Series Fall Series in October!
