24 Hours of PAINes

What it's all about

The challenge of 24 Hours of PAINes is leading a route clean to get points and doing so continously for 24 hours. It is a team challenge however both members will not have to climb the same routes. Individual scores will be added as a team total. This way an 18 grade climber can get together with a 25 grade climber and make a team.
