Friction Series SF was two weeks ago and while we’re still reeling from the excitement, we are looking forward to Sunnyvale’s finale!  Since launching the Friction Series back in 2009 and creating the first Bay Area Onsight Final in 2010 – this comp has grown to be a ton of fun and excitement!  Local strong men and women get to duke it out high on ropes and compete for cold hard cash while we  cheer them on!  Even better,  these routes stay up so you can test your strengths against some of the best climbers in our community.

As if you need more motivation to attend, we thought we’d recap San Francisco’s comp with some great photos by our own Brian Hedrick (aka CUZ) and guest photographer Jassa Campbell.  Get psyched!!! And we’ll see YOU on Friday, April 19th at PG Sunnyvale. SCORES are posted here.  Plus keep in mind the top 3 men and women will be invited to compete for cash the Series Final in Sunnyvale!  Think you’re in the running - double check your standings! And check out all of our photos from the event HERE on our Facebook Page.

  1. Series was great. Look forward to more of these. You need a new photographer, the fact he shot many with the 14mm distorting faces is amateur
