24 Hours of Horseshoe Hell - 2013

posted Oct 7, 2013, 9:10 AM by Kansas City Climbing Community   [ updated Oct 18, 2013, 9:54 AM by Carol Fittell ]

What is 24HHH?  Simply put, “Hell” is a 24-hour, redpoint, climbing competition.  Hosted by Horseshoe Canyon Ranch near Jasper, Arkansas, climbers from around the country (and the globe!) join together to test their metal for a solid 24-hours of climbing.  All routes must be climbed cleanly to count, and two laps may be climbed on any single route.  What started as a small gig in 2008, quickly escalated to a massive, festival-like, 3-day event.  Costumes, funky haircuts, and more spectators than competitors make this comp a must for your tick-list, but be quick:  registration filled in 4 minutes for 2013. 

While Arkansas had the most climbers, it’s hard to tell exactly how many represented KCCC as our climbers are split between Missouri and Kansas which represented a combined 65 climbers.  As self-reported on facebook, here are the results from KCCC teams of 24HHH 2013!

If you did not make it on the list that’s because you didn’t post your results on the KCCC facebook page, so shoot us an email so we can add your details! Send me your team picture and I'll add it by your name, too.  For more info on the comp you can follow 24 Hours of Horseshoe Hell on facebook, or on their website.  I also highly recommend watching this video of Jeremy Collins directing the Climber’s Creed.
