Last weekend we all got together on a rainy Portland Saturday for our third annual PDX Pulldown, and what a blast it was. The community gathered late in the morning and began to sign up for the competition. The crowd quickly grew, and so did the psyche. Once open climbing had started we quickly saw some of Portland's strongest climbers top some of our hardest routes, entertaining to say the least - a nod to what we would see in our Onsight Finals! But there wasn't only climbing to be had. With amazing sponsors from Mountain Hardware to The North Face there were plenty of tables for competitors and spectators alike to check out, and grab some swag.
