ABOUT THE COMP
24 Hours of Horseshoe Hell is an endurance rock climbing competition held annually on the last full weekend of September, within the steep sandstone cliff walls of Horseshoe Canyon Ranch, Jasper, AR. Teams of two have the opportunity to choose between a 12 hour and 24 hour event, or, in some cases, both events for a total of 36 hours of climbing. Click here for more info on 24HHH.
