The Yank-N-Yard is not just a competition; it is an annual gathering of the Southwest’s climbing community. Each year we strive to grow and provide a spectacular event while strengthening our local and national communities.
OCTOBER 20TH & 21st, 2017
The Yank-N-Yard consists of three competitions; the youth USAC Local Competition, the adult Citizens’ Competition, and the Open Competition. The Open Competition is the big one with strong athletes competing for the cash purse. All competitors competing in the USAC Local and the Citizens’ Competitions are entered in the prize raffle!
All Open competitors must have a current 2016/2018 USA Climbing Competitor Membership or purchase a USAC day fee and must register for the event directly with USA Climbing. The registration fee for the Open category is $75, the Youth and Citizens’ registration fee is $45 until midnight of the day prior to the comp and $55 at the door. No guarantee of a comp shirt if you register the day of. You must register early to be guaranteed your size and style of the custom comp shirt.

We start the event on Friday evening with an Open Category redpoint qualifier round for a chance to compete in the finals for cash. While the Open category is obviously a serious competition, the Youth and Citizens’ rounds are more about gathering with friends and achieving your personal best. All Youth and Citizens’ competitors are entered into our prize raffle with an equal chance to win your share of over $5000 in prizes.
We kick off Saturday with a USA Climbing sanctioned local youth bouldering competition in the morning before the Citizens’ competition for adult recreational climbers in the afternoon. The dual rounds will help distribute the crowd and allow everyone to climb to their heart’s content or the capacity of their skin. In the evening, everyone joins the party and gathers around for the main event, the Open Finals!
