BRING THE HEAT
Hotter Than Chicken is a standard bouldering competition with a spicy twist. For every piece of Hot Chicken (or veggie patty) you eat, you're climbing score will be multiplied. Will the hot chicken help you earn extra points or will it be detrimental to your climbing? Who knows? There is only one way to find out! Don't want to eat? You still have a shot at the prize but it'll be tough work!
NEW THIS YEAR
Pre-Finals Block Party: Whether you're a competitor, spectator, or chicken tender, join us for an explosive block party from 4:00pm - 7:00pm, that's sure to get you hyped for finals as you eat, drink, play games, earn swag, and listen to live music!
The Black Diamond Fire Finals: Get ready for an unbelievable show as our nation's top competitors test their mettle against some of the hottest boulders and tenders this side of Mt. Etna. A final showdown complete with pro climbers, lights, DJ's, swag, beer, and awesomeness, may just be the most fun thing you'll see this summer.
$6000 CASH PURSE AND OVER 20K IN PRIZES!
The male and female HTC champions will take home $2000 in cash along with their very own ClimbAxe - an axe custom crafted by Climb Nashville Member Adam Fisher right here in Nashville, TN. With a head forged from mid-century steel, a handle made of 100% Tennessee Hickory, and a wedge of 3,000 year old fossilized Irish bog-wood, these axes are representative of the steel nerves and fiery spirit demanded of an HTC champion.
All other Fire Finalists will take home their share of the cash purse and the top three redpoint round winners in each category will nab their share of the $25k in prizes provided by Black Diamond and other sponsors.
