The weather started out a bit rainy, but soon turned into a brilliant Park City evening as the Psicobloc Masters climbing competition got under way. Sixteen world-class climbers from fought for a $20,000 prize in a race to the top of the 55-ft wall erected at the pool of Utah Olympic Park. The brainchild of renowned deep water solo climber Chris Sharma, Psicobloc pushes climbers and the sport to new levels. In the end, Michaela Kiersch of Chicago edged out the other ladies to claim the top prize while Germany's Jan Hoyer (who also took first at Psicobloc Milan) won by a hand against local Nathaniel Coleman. 

Now that the competition is over, it's your chance to get on the wall. The holds have been reset to simpler routes of varying difficulty, allowing the public a chance to try out some deep water solo during regular activity hours at Utah Olympic Park. See you on the wall!
