A timed hiking experience designed to challenge you and your friends.
Challenge yourself and your friends to a timed 2400' climb to the top!
Introducing the Crystal Climb!
We’ve recently installed RFID tag detectors to track your hiking performance. This will allow you to track your speed from top to bottom starting on Kelley’s Gap Road to Green Valley trail and ending at the summit.
We will also have a leaderboard inside the RDL Gift Shop of the fastest times so you can compete with your friends, neighbors, or complete strangers in a race to the top.
View Trail Map or grab one from the Right Angle Sports retail store where you also buy the RFID tags. rich-text
Step 1: Buy RFID tags
Visit the Right Angle Sports retail store to buy your RFID tags and pick up a trail map.
Note: The RFID tags cannot be read through clothes, pockets, wallets or other material. So attach it to the outside of your shirt, jacket, pants or shorts. Just make sure it beeps when you approach the Monument.
Step 2: Prepare for your Hike
Bring water, a snack, extra clothes, all the essentials to ensure you’re prepared for your hike. rich-text
When you’re ready, scan your new RFID tag in front of the Stone Monument outside of the Right Angle Sports retail store.
One beep means you're checked in.
Multiple beeps mean you’ve already checked into this station.
After you’ve checked in…
Start your hike! Hurry you’re being timed.
You’ve made it! Find the monument behind the trail map sign. Congratulations you have successfully completed a Base to Summit hiking trail. We will keep track of your time and you can share your results with your friends or challenge yourself to get a personal best time.
We will also display the results on a leader board inside the RDL Gift Shop. rich-text
The RFID tag you purchase will be yours to keep, every time you visit Crystal Mountain you can challenge yourself by trying to achieve a new fastest time. Coming soon you will be able to update your profile via a designated website with your nickname and info so you can see how well you stack up compared to other hikers.
