Sterling is hosting an awesome Member Appreciation competition on February 18th - crate stacking! The concept is simple: using plastic crates, competitors vie to make the highest stack possible. Oh, and we should probably mention that you'll be on belay and standing atop the stack the entire time, somehow adding new layers without falling off. The event starts at 7pm and promises to be a wacky night with some ingenious engineering and plenty of crumbling crate construction.
