As if grappling wasn’t hard enough on the body, we figured, what could be better than a jiu-jitsu tournament on the top of Mount Evans? For our 2nd annual Pirates at the Peak event we fought it out at an altitude of 14,271 feet above sea level and just over half the oxygen, where one single match felt like completing a full open mat!
Due to this lack of oxygen, our rules were:
No Heel Hooks
Our main objective was to have fun, which we did. This was an absolutely amazing experience. The top of the mountain (as well as the drive up) was gorgeous. Despite how hard it was to compete, the matches and time spent with our gym members was a blast.
