*The spirit of this event is to give everyone who can the opportunity to earn a Kong Climb T-shirt by completing their 1,000 foot climb. In that spirit, the organizers may allow some climbers to continue past the 30 minute mark if it appears that they will complete the 1,000 feet (with consideration of time needed to reset so that the next climber is not delayed in starting).
Be safe,
