Timing Results & Beat Your Time: After you climb, visit our Timing Station for preliminary timing results.  It could take up to 15 minutes for your results to appear after you've finished climbing. Beat Your Time from 2017 to earn a ribbon to add to your medal!

Climbing Etiquette, Safety & Water Stations: If a faster climber is approaching you, please move to the outside wall so they can easily pass you. Faster climbers pass on the left side. Headphones are allowed, but please keep the volume low. There will be water stations in the building!
