"Fixed Anchor Update" for Enchanted Rock

Open Letter from Larry Kruse

Majority Response to Larry Kruse' Open Letter

----- The "official" Granite Gripper 2000 results information ----

The 9th annual Granite Gripper had 107 registered competitors in 8 divisions. The following represents the list of award recipients and their respective scores.
Although the Bouldering Exhibition was not run as a contest this year, there were 30 participants in this event, which organizers feel demonstrate enough interest to warrant including this as a competitive event for next year's Granite Gripper.

Congratulations to the competitors listed below, and a heartfelt "Thank You!!!" to all of the competitors who came out and supported this year's event benefiting the Central Texas Climbing Committee and Enchanted Rock State Natural Area.
