Outside's long reads email newsletter features our strongest writing, most ambitious reporting, and award-winning storytelling about the outdoors. Sign up today.
Tomorrow is the start of the Nor'Easter, an outdoors and conservation festival that will be taking place this weekend at Loon Mountain, New Hampshire. Besides music, gear demos, clinics, and general good times, the Nor'Easter is hosting the last Unified Bouldering Championships event of the year, and pros like Chris Sharma, Daniel Woods, Dave Graham, and Angie Payne will be showing up to compete.
The competition will be webcast on the UBC website; qualifiers start on Friday afternoon at 2 EST. I'll also be heading to the Nor'Easter to cover this weekend's action for Outside, so if you're at the festival and you see a tall, goofy-looking young man with a buzz cut snapping photos, make sure to say hi.
