JESSE WALKER & HOT NOISE AT 2014 CLIFF BAR PSICOBLOC MASTERS FINAL, FRIDAY AUGUST 8
Psicobloc (Spanish for “crazy bouldering,” or what is commonly referred to as “deep-water soloing”) is a form of solo climbing over a (deep) body of water and is undoubtedly one of the most unique and purest forms of climbing. Elite climbers like Chris Sharma make regular pilgrimages to exotic locales like Mallorca to push the envelope of technical climbing and experience the special challenge afforded by Psicobloc.
Now in it's second year the Psicobloc Masters Series is split across three days from August 6 – 8, 2014 with Finals rounds being held on August 7th and 8th respectively at the Utah Olympic Park in Park City, UT. Last year’s competition drew an estimated crowd of over 5,000 spectators to the event, and over 50,000 viewers watching the live stream and the event re-broadcast. This year’s competition will again feature a men’s and women’s division, and will be in the style of a “duel”, where competitors race head-to-head on identical routes, with the highest or first to the top advancing to the next round. The competition wall, designed by Walltopia, reaches over 50 feet above the pool and overhangs roughly 25 feet. The climbers use no ropes or harnesses, creating a thrilling plunge into the water below if they fall.
Guest DJ's JESSE WALKER & HOT NOISE will be providing sonic disruption on the final night of August 8th from 6-12pm.
