Why have a normal birthday with cake and paper hats when you can do a birthday challenge? The b-day challenge consists of any goal you set yourself on your birthday, like drinking 21 shots on your 21st birthday - bad idea - to running 30 miles when you're 30 - great idea. Join pro climber Alex Johnson as she turns 25 and attempts to climb 25 sport pitches and a bundle of classic boulder problems in Red Rock Canyon, Nevada. What a way to celebrate getting older, stronger, and wiser!

Birthday Challenge - n. “...a goal, generally in the form of physical achievement, to make your birthday more memorable than the last. Usually the number of your years lends itself to the base of your challenge.”
