There are a few things we associate with Downtown Chattanooga.
For me and probably most, we think of the Aquarium, Mellow Mushroom, Coldstone Creamery, and so on and so on.
Since the big blue rock wall went up on Broad Street, you can’t imagine downtown without it, but did you know there’s a second High Point Climbing Gym location? Yep, check it out by swinging by the Riverside gym off Amnicola for Round 2 of the Chatt Town Throw Down bouldering competition this Saturday starting at 4 p.m.
Experience bouldering from the ground below as the Round 1 finalists compete in the next leg of the competition. There’s a cash prize involved for the mens and womens overall winners, but honestly, it’s probably the audience that is the real winner here.
Anybody can rock climb with a belt and an instructor, but it’s an amazing feat some of the things these boulderers can accomplish. Maybe witnessing this event will inspire you to try out your own bouldering skills. Who knows, maybe you’ll be a part of the competition next year.
The only way to know if you’d like it is to try, but we certainly won’t judge if you start out small by spectating.
