Want to be a part of the only outdoor rope and bouldering competition in southeastern America? Or maybe you'd like to come out and watch?

Rumble 2024 is the 9th annual, outdoor rope and rock bouldering competition taking place at the Rumbling Bald Climbing Access at Chimney Rock State Park. This three-day event has so much to offer for climbers but also spectators as well. On March 2, spectators can go into the boulder fields and cliff bases to watch bouldering and roped climbing. Spectators are also welcome to join the after-party awards ceremony at Morse Park where there will have food and beverages available for a donation.

Please visit website for more information, to schedule and/or to register.

Registration is required to compete. This event raises essential funding for the CCC's stewardship and access efforts. A portion of the Rumble proceeds will also go to North Carolina Friends of State Parks, supporting their amazing access work in Chimney Rock State Park.
