What is CRAG?

CRAG (Climbers Rage Against Gravity) is an annual intercollegiate bouldering competition (redpoint format) hosted by the Stanford Climbing Wall and Stanford Outdoor Education. This will be the 11th Annual CRAG and will be held at the AOERC Climbing Wall! CRAG is open to climbers of all ability levels. Although CRAG is a competition, the atmosphere is supportive and fun. Prizes from sponsors are awarded and raffled off following each competition. A current ID card (student/staff/faculty) from any college or university is required to participate.
