From Head Route Setter and comp organizer Shane Messer:

On April 21st 2012, Central Rock Gym in Hadley, Massachusetts held its first ever Ring of Fire pro sport climbing event. For a first year event it pulled in some big hitters to take a swing at a $5000 purse. These big hitters included Sasha Digiulian, Kasia Pietras, Isabelle Faus, Nadia Vorotnikov, and Melanie Messer on the ladies side and Alex David Johnson, Daniel Woods, Vasya Vorotnikov, Josh Levin, Nicolas Millburn, Jimmy Webb, Josh Larson, Brian Kim, and Peter Kamitses on the guys side. It was an all-star cast that gave it their all. We couldn’t have been happier with the turnout of both competitors and the energetic audience.

The competition was a flash format qualifier followed by a 1 route onsight final. Finals had the feel of a high energy bouldering competition but the look of a sport climbing competition. Click the image below for a highlight reel of the events.
