COMPETITION RULES:

20 new boulders will be set every Tuesday for five weeks.

Week 1 thru 5 

Modified Redpoint. Each category will have 5 climbs. 

Week 5 – Finals 

Week 5 Finals on Tuesday 10/12. Awards for top teams and MVP in each category will be given.

Scoring

Your score will be the total points you accumulate on your 5 boulders. 

Your score will be combined with the rest of your teammates each week, to calculate your teams total score. At the end of week 5 the team with the most cumulative points wins the Team Category. The person in each category with the most points wins the individual category. Ties will be awarded to the team/individual with the most completed boulders.

Modified Redpoint

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. Mark the highest point zone, or finish, that you reach. You have unlimited attempts, so just mark your best score. If you use a hold or feature that is “off route” no more points can be earned and the attempt will count. Don’t Cheat!

Scorecards

Scorecards will be kept at the front desk where the teams can pick them up before climbing and then return them after.

The scoreboard will be updated each week online.

TEAMS:

Teams are made up of four individuals.

There are 4 people on each team. Crux will place people on a team. Each team is mixed with climbers of different skill levels; however, the team members’ categories do not matter because the scoring system is not weighted heavier for harder problems (see below).

Beginner (VB-1), Intermediate (V2-V4 ), Advance (V5-V7), Open (V8+)
