The Deep Water Solo Comp returned to Tuck Fest in 2018 and put on a spectacle that will not soon be forgotten. 48 athletes from across the world assembled in Charlotte, North Carolina, over two days for qualifiers, seeding, and finals, where the top men and women battled it out for a piece of the $15,000 cash purse.

The competition is held each year on the world’s only Deep Water Solo climbing complex. Climbers compete head-to-head based on their seeding in a single elimination tournament style bracket. The fastest climber to the top of the wall advances in each round until a champion is crowned.

Tuck Fest 2019 will take place on April 25 – 28 at the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC. For more information visit https://tuckfest.usnwc.org/.
