The Town of Carbondale Recreation and Community Center hosted a bouldering competition at the climbing wall on Saturday, Nov. 5.

The American Bouldering Series is a national organization that has local and regional competitions across America and culminates in a national competition.

There were 40 different bouldering “problems” set on the climbing wall, each with a different point value. A competitor’s top five scores from completed problems were tallied to determine a winner in each division.

Sixty-nine competitors from throughout the state competed, with many locals holding their own against the stiff competition.
