Due to very few people interested in splitting league or being able to climb on Wednesday, we are keeping league on Tuesday night only. What does this mean? Zone Lines! We will tape out several zones (an area where a handful of climbs intermingle). When you want to climb a problem in that zone you will place your scorecard at the bottom of the scorecard pile cueing you up for your turn. We will all pitch in to call out names that are up for their turn. Bonus: you get to see what it feels like to climb in an actual bouldering comp!
Please see the next tab for reminders on comp etiquette. It has been a long time since we all did this, so lets give ourselves a little refresher! :) Enjoy.
1) Share the lanes. Take a moment to look around and ask if others have been waiting before hopping on a problem.
2) Check to make sure your route doesn't cross paths with another or that you aren't walking/hanging out in a climbers fall zone.
3) Whoever starts their climb first has the right-of-way.
4) Don't spray beta (in other words, don't give unsolicited advice). Some people enjoy being able to figure it out on their own. Ask if someone would like input first, don't assume.
5) Lastly, watch out for each other. Sometimes climbers don't see that someone else was waiting to get on or that their routes will cross paths, so please kindly let them know. We're all friends here! :)
Scores & Rankings Wk1
This is the initial ranking week. Just like a normal redpoint competition, you'll have the whole evening to climb the league boulders. Your score will be the sum of the top 5 boulders you complete.
Afterward, we'll use the data from everyone's scores to create teams that are evenly balanced in terms of ability.
Each week, climb on the freshly-set boulders to boost your individual score. Use your teammates for beta, encouragement, or heckling (whatever motivates you). Everyone has until closing to climb, and your score will be the sum of the top 5 boulders you complete and your team score will be the sum of all the teams individuals scores combined.
Rules meeting will start at 6:30pm. We run a finals format similar to what you might see at a professional competition. You have 4 minutes to send the boulder in your category (which is identified in week 1). All your teammates are on the wall with you working to top their own boulder with the crowd at your back cheering you on!
Then after you get pizza, fizzy drinks, and beer (21+) while we hold the awards ceremony!
Each week there will be 20 new boulders number 1-20. Please write the corresponding number on your score sheet followed by the points the problem is worth (ex) Multiply the problem # by 100 to get the point value. Problem 5 = 500; Problem 11=1100; Problem 20=2000
Have 2 people initial your sheet that witness your sending the boulder (at least one must be from another team)
Top 3 teams will receive a prize:
