This ain’t your average climbing competition. No, we’re talking a boulder flashin’, beer flowin’, music pumpin’, kind of time. So strap on those masks, lace up the ol’ climbing shoes, and get ready for Come and Send It Vol 5.
Wow, what a year it’s been! If anything this year has proven over and over again that our community is top notch and that we miss celebrating with them! Our fourth anniversary may have come and gone, but we’re going to do what we can to celebrate our fifth! It may be a little different than our other Come and Send It Fest, but we can’t wait to celebrate with you all the same!
Sign up for one of the four sessions and battle it out for your chance to climb in the finals, no matter your category! We’ll see you there, partna’.
Please no dogs on competition day.

If you think you can flash (send with no falls) 8-10 climbs in the grade range shown next to the category, then you should move up to the next category. i.e. If you are thinking of completing in Women’s Intermediate and you typically send every V2-V4 you try without falling you should move up to the Women’s Advanced category. Unless you are having the best climbing day of your life, you should not flash every problem in your category.
Come and Send It Fest’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.
The top 6 competitors from EACH category in Women and Men will move on to climb in an on sight finals that will use USA Climbing’s “multi-zone” scoring system.
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. Any completions not judged, will not be counted towards your final score. To limit the amount of people in the space, we will not have judges but instead do witness signatures.
If you have any questions about the rules, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
