October 15th & 16th, 2021

The Yank-N-Yard is not just a competition; it is an annual gathering of the New Mexico climbing community and our way of celebrating the strength, diversity, and creativity of our local and national athletes. Even with the restriction that were necessary in 2020, we trust that this event, which by now is an Albuquerque staple, offered something of value to each of the participants.
