Welcome to the 2019 North Shore Style Climbing Competition! “Are you Yeti for this?”

It’s a big year as the Yeti storms back in to Duluth for one of the most exciting competitions in the north!  After a hiatus (the Yeti needed to hibernate), the Duluth Climbers Coalition is excited to be putting this competition on again in support of Duluth climbing.  This is a chance to climb all day on brand-new routes, win gear, support your local climbing community, and meet psyched climbers from all over the Midwest!
