Game Changer: Boulder Dash bringing popular mountain sport to new heights
BREVARD, N.C. (WLOS) —
Climbing with the best of the best from across the state. Forty-seven climbers from schools such as N.C. State, Appalachian State, UNC, Western Carolina, and Davidson descended on Transylvania County for the event.
Routes ranged in difficulty from beginner to professional levels.
Climbing is a unique competition where competitors are supportive of each other. "It's like a family, " said Brevard freshman Ben Lawson. "Everyone is always trying to help out the next person. I'll be on the wall or something and someone will just come up to me and say, 'You know you can make that better, you can make it look smoother by doing this.' It helps me see my progress from the help of other people."
