Climbers Rage Against Gravity (CRAG) is an annual intercollegiate bouldering competition (redpoint format) hosted by the Stanford Climbing Wall and Stanford Outdoor Education. CRAG is open to climbers of all ability levels. Although CRAG is a competition, the atmosphere is supportive and fun. Prizes from sponsors are awarded and raffled off following each competition.
