Bat City Bash’s redpoint round will use USA Climbing’s Classic Redpoint Format. The competitor will receive the sum of the V points for the top 5 hardest problems
they completed during the competition period. The total number of attempts on
those 5 problems will also be tracked and used in the event of a tie by comparing
the cumulative number of attempts for each tied competitor. 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). If a hold spins or breaks step off immediately and notify the front desk staff. If you use a hold or feature that is “off route” no more points can be earned and the attempt will count.

Using the App for Scoring

Climber will establish a free account on the app prior to coming to the gym. Once
at the gym and through the check-in process, they will activate their competition
session in the app.

During their session, they will input all of their attempts and completed climbs into
the app. Other than any time constraints imposed by the gym’s capacity policies
and operating hours, there will be no constraint on how much time a climber may
spend attempting the problems. At the conclusion of the competition period, the
competitor’s results will be officially submitted via the app.

Training materials on how to use the app will be provided to climbers/parents, and
there will be telephone support available from the app provider, USAC Staff, and/or Regional Coordinators.

If you have any questions about the rules, please email



All competitors must sign our waiver. All competitors must have a USA Climbing Competitor membership, and will register for the competition at Kaya’s website.

A competitor’s result at the comp only counts towards Regionals qualification if they hold a Competitor membership at the time of the comp; her/his single best result (in terms of total V points) among however many comps they enter as a Competitor member will determine their Regional ranking in their category, with the top 25 eligible to compete at Regionals.
