Petzl and Expedition Oregon Make Adventure Race History!

© youtube

The 2019 Expedition Oregon partnered with Petzl to create a technical ropes section unlike anything in the sport's 40 year history. With the help of a top notch team of riggers and rescue volunteers on hand, racers climbed a 3 pitch route (leading on their own rope) to the top of the iconic Opossum Spire at Smith Rock. Teams were watched closely by members of the safety team (but not assisted), as they scaled a 500ft technical rock climb on their own. Several teams did the entire route in the middle of the night! And this was on the 4th day of the 5 day non-stop race! For more epic coverage of the event, check out the videos of both the 2018 and 2019 races on BendRacing.com. Where will Expedition Oregon push the boundaries in 2020? Only one way to find out - Become your own Legend.
