Club bouldering competition (Round 1 - Social Climbing)
Monday, 14th December 2020 at 12am - 11:59pmThursday, 31st December
Location:Social Climbing, Leicester
This event is in the past.
We can't get together for our usual bouldering competition meet this year, so instead we are going to have ourselves a bouldering league which will take place over several rounds at local indoor bouldering venues. This is the first round which will take place at Social Climbing between now and New Years eve. The competition is open to any club member and there will be no charge for entry. We may have a small prize for the winner of each round and for the overall winners at the end of the league.
We're very grateful to the team at Social Climbing who are letting us use their competition circuit which they have set for their own winter bouldering league AND have agreed to let Bowline Club members pay the concession rate for entry to Social Climbing between now and Christmas (details of how to get the discounted rate will be sent to club members only in a separate email).
As we are using the same circuit as the Social Climbing winter bouldering league you can also enter their competiton as well. Just be aware of the different rules for our competition and the Social Climbing winter bouldering league. Also, don't forget to book your slot in advance to use Social Climbing, see their website for details.
The rules for our bouldering leauge have delibrately been kept very simple. All you need to do is record how many of the problems on the Social Climbing winter bouldering league circuit you manage to top and of these how many you flashed. For an attempt to count as 'topped' you must start on the marked start holds and you must finish in control with both hands on the final hold. You can have as many goes at each problem as you like across as many visits to Social Climbing as you like up until New Years eve (but don't forget the discounted entry is only until Christmas).
After New Years eve we'll ask you all to send us your count of how many of the problems you topped, how many you flashed (used as a tie breaker), and also we will ask you to send us the highest bouldering grade you can normally climb which will be used to apply a simple handicap system to make the competition a bit fairer. We will then announce the results and hopefully by that point we'll be announcing the next round.
Good luck everyone. Any questions please contact Andy Potter.
