    Name: 2022 Rumble Competition
    Date: March 4, 2022 - March 6, 2022
    Event Description:
    The Rumbling Bald Competition was established in 2014 by the Triple Crown Bouldering Series.  This competition proved to be a HUGE success and the Triple Crown has since passed the competition off to the CCC as a fundraiser for the Carolina Climbers Coalition, in support of Chimney Rock State Park and the Town of Lake Lure.  The comp has historically brought over 500 people to the quaint town of Lake Lure and left a positive lasting impression on local business and citizens.  The Rumbling Bald Competition was among one of the favorite climbing events in recent years and speculation of its return has been buzzing ever since!
