Bouldering League Summer 2019

Starts Thursday, August 15th

What is Bouldering League all about?

Camaraderie, teamwork, and winning best team name.

Join us for a fun 5 weeks of fresh boulders and friendly competition. Rather than competing as individuals, we will put together teams of four climbers who will compete together against other teams. We will end it all on week 5 with an on-sight round. Each team will have their chance to send the hardest in the final showdown. Winners will be announced, followed by pizza, drinks, and reminiscing of weeks past with your new besties.

Our leagues are for all skills levels and climbing experience!

2Schedule

Week 1: Ranking Week

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.

It is very important that everyone who wants to participate in the league attends this week, so that we can do a proper ranking and team assignment. If you know that you cannot attend this week then please be sure to note that when you sign up.

Weeks 2 through 4

Each week, climb on the freshly-set boulders to boost your individual score. Use your teammates for beta, encouragement, or heckling (whatever best motivates you to send). 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.

Week 5: Finals Week - September 12th

Everyone will get a chance to climb in front of a cheering crowd, in an onsight-style finals specifically crafted to meet the ability levels of the participants. After finals, there will be a party with Slyce pizza and drinks provided by Ascent.

3Scoring

Just like a normal redpoint competition, you will have from 6:00pm until close to climb on the fresh set of league-specific boulders.

Each week, your score will be the sum of your top 5 hardest completed boulders. Your teams score will be the sum of your combined individual scores.

We will be using the first week (August 15th) as a "ranking week" to build the teams. Using the scores from the first week, we'll build teams that are equitable in ability, to create a more fair and fun competition.

You may miss/drop one week of the league without incurring a penalty against your individual or teams score.

We will have awards for the winning team and the MVP's from each category (Beg, Int, Adv, Open). Winners will be announced after finals.

4Finals

Finals are on Thursday, September 12th!

Finals will be an onsight-style round, with boulders set at varying difficulties to accommodate all ability levels.

Following finals, we'll have a party with food and drinks supplied by Ascent.
