I'm interested in doing a series of climbing races in the US this year. I know that the Everest Challenge out of Bishop, California used to be part of climber's series. Does anyone know if such a series still exists? I think it used to be called the James Ray climbers cup. But, I can't find anything now.

Thanks,
Brent

I think the last year they had it was 2003, and I think Chris Horner won (probably wrong?). There were certain races that had points avaliable for the cup. So it was a race inside of a race, kind of............

I haven't seen or read anything about it recently.

These were the guys that sponsered the cup, shoot them an emil and see what they say. http://www.hlhap.com/catalyst.htm
