The competition at Squirrel Park at the corner of Airport Road and state Route 26 will begin at 8 a.m. EST. It will feature 15-20 climbers, mostly from Indiana but including others from surrounding states who will use the occasion to practice for their state competitions. Only members of the Indiana group can compete for the Indiana title.
