FAR Far Away…photo contest

Alaska, Australia, Switzerland, South Africa. Hang out at First Ave or Birmingham Boulders long enough and you’ll realize that our climbers don’t just climb at the gym, they climb all over the world!

Shoot a picture of a First Ave/B2 sticker or logo item as far from Birmingham as possible and submit for your chance to win one of three prize packs from Black Diamond, Mountain High Outfitters, and Asana Climbing. 

Categories are: Farthest Distance, Best Photo, Most Unusual/Unexpected.

Photos can be sent to info@firstaverocks, B2/First Ave instagram or facebook pages. Be sure to include #FARfarphoto so we can check out your adventures. Winners will be announced at our May the 4th Community night. You do not need to be present to win.
