Why Compete?

The word "competition" immediately creates a sense of nevousness and intimidation in many climbers. Yet comps can be one of the single most effective tools to progress your climbing abilities.

How it Works

This is a redpoint format competition. Each competitor has 4 hours to complete the most difficult top-rope and lead routes they can. Points are given for every route completed, with harder routes being worth more points and lead climbs being worth more than top-ropes. Each competitor's final score is the sum of their 3 highest scoring routes.

Competitors can pre-register for $35 by March 18. $45 after March 18.

T-shirts can be pre-purchased for a cost of $15. Shirts will be $20 on comp day.
