Never been in a climbing competition before? Here's the lowdown.

Why are there 2 climbing sessions?

In an effort to make sure everyone has enough time and space to climb we’re offering two 3-hour sessions. Participants can choose whichever session works best for them.
 
What does the schedule of events look like?
 
  • Registration/Check-In Opens – 9:15am/12:15pm
  • Intro/Rules Meeting – 9:45am/12:45pm
  • Climbing – 10:00am-1:00pm / 1:00pm-4:00pm
  • Gym Closes for finals prep 4:30pm
  • Gym reopens for Finals Watch Party – 6:30pm
  • Finals – 7:00pm
Who can compete?
Anyone can enter! All ages and all levels are encouraged to compete. Climbing competitions are a great way to meet new climbers and hone your climbing skills in a fast-paced and fun environment.
 
It’s a kid friendly event, but not an open climbing time. Kids are welcome to compete and then watch, but there will be no open climbing or roped climbing during the event. All climbers must be registered as competitors.
 
I’ve never participated in a climbing comp before. What should I expect?
Upon arrival, you’ll register or check-in and receive your scorecard. There will be an orientation and breakdown of the comp so you’ll know exactly what to do. Be sure to arrive early to give yourself plenty of time to prep. Bring your shoes (rental shoes are available), water and snacks if you’d like – but we’ll have some on hand as well!
 
How does the judging & scoring work?
The Scrapyard Sends Boulder Comp will be a red point competition – which means that climbers can attempt problems as many times as they want. Each problem is valued at a certain number of points, though falls deduct points from the value of the climb. If a climber completes the climb on the first try, it’s called a “flash” and bonus points are received.
 
For each problem, you’ll need to collect two signatures of witnesses that saw your climb for verification. At the end of the comp, all the scorecards are collected and your top five highest scores are tallied to your total score.
 
For the advanced categories, the top 5 male and female competitors from the qualifying sessions will climb 3 problems in front of the crowd during final round.
 
How do I know which category to enter?
Competitors can sign up in the following three categories:
 
  • Recreational (VB-V2)
  • Intermediate (V3-V5)
  • Advanced (V6+)

If you’re somewhere in between and not sure, just pick a category that’s closest to your climbing ability.

What happens if I signed up for the wrong category?
If your scores are off the charts, you’ll be bumped up to the next category. Likewise, if you register for a category a bit out of reach, you’ll be bumped down a category. No sandbagging allowed – that is, signing up for a category way below your skill level.
 
I just started climbing a few months ago. Should I enter?
Yes! The recreational category is perfect for beginner climbers and a great way to be immersed in the world of climbing. Plus, each category has its own set of winners. 
 
Will male and female participants be competing against each other?
No, our competition is separated into male and female divisions in each category. There will be male and female winners for each category. Individuals participating in this competition may do so in accordance with their gender identity. Non-binary climbers are encouraged to participate in the division of their choice. 
 
What can I win?
For all the categories, first, second and third place winners will receive sweet prizes from our sponsors. All attendees are invited to participate in our raffle, where you can also win some great prizes.
 
Can I just come for the party and not climb or compete?
Absolutely! Come join the fun, watch your friends compete, drink some beer from Our Brewing Company and enjoy the show.
