Every weekday afternoon, you can find groups of excited little (to not so little) kids working crushing your projects.  These youth make up Planet Granite’s Climbing Team headed by coaches Ryan Honda (PG Belmont), Isaac Williams (PG Sunnyvale) & Steve Lancaster (PG San Francisco).

Last month, the PG Climbing Team attended  NorCal Regionals and competed against other climbing teams in our northern California region.  With over 68 competitors, PG’s team was the largest presence by over 40 participants!  And of those 68 kids, over 30 scored high enough in their category and were invited to compete in Divisionals in Reno this Saturday!  Go Team!

CONGRATS to every climber!
