We are super psyched, and proud, to recognize all of the EW team kids who have been absolutely crushing it this comp season.  At our own Blacklight Comp, 7 kids placed in the top 5 in their category with two 1st place finishes.  The weekend before, at Northwest Boulderfest, 3 kids placed in the top 4 – again with a 1st place finish.
