Bat City Bash’s redpoint round will use USA Climbing’s Redpoint “Modified” Format with their “multi-zone” scoring system. The goal is to complete the highest quantity of problems, where each problem has the same value and scores, and where all problems are counted. A competitor’s final score shall be the cumulative value of points recorded on each problem. Ties will be broken by falls, number of tops, flashes, and then falls to tops. If you have further questions, please consult the USA Climbing Rulebook.

Points are earned by completing a problem from start to finish while establishing control of the finish hold with two hands, or by controlling a “zone” hold with one hand. Attempts must be recorded (every time the feet leave the ground) by placing a (0, 5, 10, 15, or 25) in the appropriate box for each attempt or completion of the boulder problem. If a hold spins or breaks step off immediately and notify the judge or the attempt will count. If you use a hold or feature that is “off route” no more points can be earned and the attempt will count. A judge must sign your scorecard in order to receive credit. Any completions not judged, will not be counted towards your final score.

We are super excited to host another youth local competition. Volunteers are essential to helping make these competitions run smoothly! We cannot thank parents, friends, and family enough for the time they give to this event.

Volunteers will have a dedicated check-in at the kids room where they will also receive coffee, bagels, snacks, and water bottles. All volunteers receive 1 day pass per hr volunteer, so judges will receive 5 day passes! Register below for check-in, judge, or judge relief.

No experience necessary. We schedule everyone with enough time to go over rules for judging beforehand. 


Registration is closed because it is full.

All competitors must sign our waiver. All competitors must have a USAC climbing competitor membership or an introductory membership to participate in the event.
