On December 8, 2017 the Red Bull Psicobloc climbing event went down with a splash in Oman’s Musandam Peninsula. Imagine, deep water solo with a capture the flag twist.
It was organized by our very own Read Macadam, who had been working to get this event off the water for some time and we were proud to act as one of the primary sponsors of the event.
Chris Sharma was on hand to place flags on the routes and 40+ climbers from all over the Middle East, both expatriates and locals, competed to collect the most flags for the Red Bull Psicobloc trophy.
Sharma even brushed up a new project for the locally based climbers to test their mettle in the future. Bella!
Congratulations to all the competitors, thanks to Chris, all of the sponsors and Red Bull for helping to make this happen.
