Pre-register by July 1st - $35  / $40 after

Competition Schedule

  • 10am to 3pm with open start time

  • Competitors have 3 hours to complete their top 6 scores

Scoring

  • Problems are valued based on difficulty

  • The harder the problem, the higher the value

  • Highest value of points is earned through by TOPPING the problem on the first attempt (Flash)

  • 1st attempt is given full value, 2nd attempt less, 3rd attempt or more even less and valued the same

  • Competitors complete their own score cards

  • Each TOP must be validated and witnessed with initials from 2 other competitors

Rules

  • This is a friendly format scramble and the goal is for everyone to enjoy themselves

  • Don't take this too seriously, it's only rock climbing

  • STARTS will be clearly marked with 4 points of contact off the ground to begin your attempt

  • TOPS are clearly marked and must be matched in control with both hands before letting go (3 seconds to be safe)

  • Each attempt must be from the start of the problem, working the problem midway or using other holds is not permitted

  • Volumes are considered part of the climbing wall and can be used on any problem IF they have T-nuts

  • Volumes without T-nuts are considered a climbing hold and only to be used with other holds of the same colour

  • Down climb holds will be provided and are black and white - these are not for use during attempts to TOP, only to climb down

Climber Etiquette

  • Take turns and be considerate

  • Do not rest or sit on the padded floors

  • Keep fall zones clear at all times 

  • Keep chalk bags and brushes off the mats

  • Have fun and cheer each other on!

Prizes and Raffles

  • Competitors will collect points for the season towards the final event

  • Swag and giveaways will be raffled out during the event giving everyone a chance to win
