On Saturday, April 25, 2015, Planet Granite Sunnyvale hosted the finals for the annual Friction Series where climbers of all ages got to prove their climbing skills in an onsight rope climbing competition.

All were invited to come on Saturday to compete, except for Planet Granite staff members. The Staff Edition of the competition happened the following day in PG Sunnyvale after the gym closed where staff members from all four gyms got to climb for points for their gym to determine which gym has the strongest staff.
