JustClimbMN is psyched to be a part of setting up three Mad Rock shoe demo events in the Twin Cities, April 18-20.
There are not many places in the Midwest to find the full array of Mad Rock shoes and we are missing out! Mad Rock recently won Climbing Magazine’s Editor’s Choice award for their new Shark 2.0, an aggressive down-turned shoe with an incredibly comfortable toe box priced at only $119!
Available for demo will be the Phoenix, an all day trad shoe; the Flash 2.0, a great intermediate shoe; and an array of more technical models that include the Concept, Conflict, Demon, and of course, the Shark 2.0.
Thursday, April 18, 5-9 pm at VE St Paul
Mad Rock has proudly become a sponsor of the Twin Cities Rock Climbing Meetup.
On Thursday, 4/18, the TCRC Meetup is holding their semi-annual Social. The night begins with climbing at Vertical Endeavors in St Paul followed by food, beverage, camaraderie, and a raffle at Sweeney’s at the corner of Selby and Dale (we have the upstairs banquet room reserved).
Mad Rock will be joining us at VES to run a shoe demo from 5-9 and then will venture over to the Social to offer TCRC Meetup climbers a special discount on shoes, pads, and other MR gear. Mad Rock is also donating prizes to the TCRC Meetup raffle, to be held at Sweeney’s, including a pair of shoes and some chalk bags.
If you are not a member of the TCRC Meetup, check out our Social event page and see all of the raffle prizes here. Maybe it is time for you to join and take a chance at winning some sweet, sweet swag!
The shoe demo is open to all climbers from 5-9 (normal gym entry fees apply). Come climb and take advantage of this opportunity to check out many of Mad Rock’s latest shoe models! Everyone that stops at Mad Rock’s demo will be eligible to win a free pair of shoes to be given away at VES before 9 pm.
Friday, April 19, 5:30-9:30 at Minnesota Climbing Co-op
On Friday night, Mad Rock will be setting up at the Minnesota Climbing Co-op during open hours.
This demo will feature many of Mad Rocks latest shoes along with some models of their bouldering pads, including the new R3 pad. The demo is open to all climbers (normal MNCC day pass entry fees apply) and there will be a raffle to give away a pair of Mad Rock shoes!
Along with Mad Rock, local climbing company, Escape Climbing Holds, will be on hand to show off their latest and greatest holds, hats, shirts, and guidebooks! There is a rumored appearance of the mythical bouldering guide to MN! Additionally, Dr. Chris Hanson of NE Community Chiropractic will be sharing advice on how to keep a climbing body healthy and strong.
Round up some friends and head over to MNCC to try the newest Mad Rock shoes on some of the best bouldering in town and for your chance to win some MR shoes of your very own! Co-op members will be able to order Mad Rock products at a discount during the demo and everyone that stops in at the Mad Rock table will be eligible to win a free pair of shoes.
Saturday, April 20, Time TBD at VE Minneapolis
April 20th is the next local climbing comp, Jug-or-Not, held all day at VEM.
Mad Rock will be on hand with a table showcasing all of their latest shoes for comp climbers and spectators alike to check out. This may be your last chance to see the MR shoes shown above in one place before spring climbing really kicks off in Minnesota.
Since this demo is happening on comp day, check with VEM about entry fees, but assume normal rates apply. (Details about time of demo are still being worked out at this time, watch for updates.)
Mad Rock will be giving away a free pair of shoes at VEM before the day is done!
