The Iron Maiden is a bouldering competition where the grace and movement of women climbers are featured. Too many bouldering comps are set for the strongest men while the women are overlooked. At the Iron Maiden, the women take center stage--no grunting, shirtless dudes throwing dynos; just graceful movement, technical climbing and, well, ok maybe a few dynos.
Each competitions series will feature 2 separate comps; one in the Fall, another in Spring.
The inaugural event took place on March 29th, 2014 at MetroRock Climbing center in Everett, MA.
