"After a day of running with Worms and logs, and flipping Pigs at the StubHub Center [in Carson, CA], teams and individual athletes gathered in the Tennis Stadium wondering what was in store for them for the Friday evening event.
In the stadium, huge, tall rigs had been set up with ropes hanging from the structures. In dramatic fashion, Dave Castro @thedavecastro told athletes they'd be completing a combination of thrusters and rope climbs. But, of course, there was a twist—the rope climbs had to be legless.
With that announcement on July 26, 2013, Pat Barber @patbarbercf demonstrated with 27 thrusters, then completed one legless rope climb on four different ropes. The rope was revealed to be short. In fact, they were hanging 5-feet off the ground."
Top scores in the event were Marcus Hendren @marcushendren (6:37.4), Jordan Troyan @jtroyancf (6:37.5), Rich Froning @richfroning (6:39)
