Bored? Want free gear?
Let us introduce Gym Climber’s Dress for Success Challenge. Similar to the viral handstand challenge, you have to get dressed while hanging from a board. Or whatever. That’s it.
The winners of each category will win gear, lots of the good stuff from top brands. Prizes include a Metolius Simulator 3D Hangboard, a Maxim rope, Mammut gym ropes, a Rhino Skin Solutions chalk bucket, and chalk from FrictionLabs, 8BPLUS, and Chalk Cartel.
Here are the rules:
There are two categories: style and speed.
Rules for SPEED category: No nudity. Shorts to pants or pants to pants ok. No shorts to shorts. Gotta put on a tee shirt, at minimum. Face mask of some sort required. All that matters is the clock. Top two winners will be given ropes, among other things.
Rules for STYLE category: speed is irrelevant. Outfit, overall demeanor, etc., factor in here. Impress us by doing it while locking off. Put on a clown costume. The top contestant will receive the hangboard, a rope, along with chalk and stuff.

Best of luck. You have a week. Post your vid by April 28th.
