The Triple Crown now consists of 4 events: Hound Ears (Boone, North Carolina), Horse Pens 40 (Steele, Alabama), and The Stone Fort, formerly known as Little Rock City (Chattanooga, Tennessee), and new for 2014...Rumbling Bald (Lake Lure, North Carolina)!
Winners are determined by highest scores. Each problem has a point value. You can do as many as you want, but your score is determined by adding the total of your 10 highest valued problems. In the event of a tie, the next highest problem will be added, and the person with the highest average will win.
Prizes will be awarded for each individual event. These will go to the top finishers of each category. Grand prizes will be awarded at the final event to competitors with the highest cumulative score from three events (Competitors that compete at all four events will have their lowest comp score dropped). Door prizes will be awarded at each event. These will be given out in a number of unique ways.
Special events will take place the night before each event. In the case of Stone Fort there will be climbing related events in Chattanooga beginning on Thursday prior to the competition.
Due to transportation and overcrowding concerns, all spectators, parents and guardians must register and pay the same as a competitor at the Hound Ears events.
