Summer Adult Bouldering League: July 25 - Sept 12
This league may be a bit different than some other bouldering leagues you may have participated in. Our goal in running this league is to foster community and camaraderie. So rather than competing only as individuals, we will put together teams of four climbers who will compete together against the other teams. These teams will be of mixed ability and mixed gender.
Here's the skinny
- Starts Tuesday July 25th at 6:00pm.
- Meets every Tuesday at 6:00pm for the following 7 weeks.
- It's okay if you can't arrive until later. You can climb until 10pm
- Price: $30 includes a t-shirt, and a party for finals
- If you are not currently a member you may purchase a 10-punch pass for $125 on or before the first night of the league.
- t-shirts provided the third week.
- Finals on Tuesday, September 12th
- Each week we'll post the team scores as well as the individual scores.
Week 1: July 25
This is the initial ranking week. Come and climb the freshly set boulders created by our setting team expressly for the league this week. As with a normal redpoint competition, you'll have 3 hours to climb and your score will be the sum of the top 5 boulders you complete.
Afterward, we'll divide the field into four quartiles, and randomly pick one person from each quartile to make each team.
If you know you'll miss some of the future weeks, then be prepared to provide that info. We'll try to make sure each team isn't missing more than one person each week.
Weeks 2 through 7
Come week 2 and meet your team.
All of the freshly set boulders each week are available to contribute to your individual score. Use your teammates for beta, encouragement, or heckling (whatever best motivates you to send). Everyone has until closing on Tuesday to climb, and your score will be the sum of the top 5 boulders you complete. Your team score will be the sum of the individual team members' scores.
Each week we'll also throw in some fun extra challenges. Maybe a few dyno problems. Maybe a "partner" climb. Maybe a knot tying contest. You won't know what we've got cooked up until you arrive.
Week 8 - Finals Week - Sept 12
Everyone will get a chance to climb in front of a cheering crowd.
There will be food and drinks.
More details to come.
Each week an individual score will be the sum of your top 5 problems.
Over the course of the league your individual score will be a cumulative total of each week's scores. If you miss a week, then your individual cumulative score will forfeit those possible points
Your team's weekly score will be the sum of your 4 team member's individual scores.
If you miss a week your contribution to your team's score for that week will be the lowest score from the previous weeks.
