Points are earned by completing a problem from start to finish while establishing control of the finish hold with two hands. Attempts must be recorded (every time the feet leave the ground) by placing a (0 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 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. Your final score is the sum of the points earned on all problems. For any boulder that is not finished, the competitor will not be deducted .10 for their falls and cannot receive a negative score on those boulders. Ties will be broken by falls, number of tops, flashes, and then falls to tops.

If you have further questions, please see the host gym manager/organizer and/or consult the USA Climbing Rulebook. All competitors must have a USA Climbing membership prior to the start of the competition in order to receive credit for the event and scores entered into the scoring module.


All competitors must sign our waiver. You may register on the day of, in-person only.
