Yank N Yard Video: Michael & Megan Crush

Professional athletes Michael O’Rourke and Megan Mascarenas both dominated the highly-anticipated Yank N Yard competition in Albuquerque, New Mexico last weekend.

Here’s the video from Stone Age, and one from the ABQ Journal.

Both are a part of Team ABC – “America’s Best Climbers”.  Team ABC posted podium shots here.

Yank N Yard is 16 years running, made famous by Stone Age Climbing Gyms’s innovative & flashy final format.

Finals is a different spectator event than most: finalists traverse hanging bouldering islands lit by psychedelic lights and vibrating beats.

Here’s Michael and Megan both finishing their final problem (that’s great setting of the part of the setting crew):
