Are you ready to RUMBLE?
Join us this October for a month-long bouldering competition!
The Rumble is a four week bouldering competition, with qualification boulders spread across the first three weeks of October and a finals round on Friday October 29th.
For three consecutive Mondays (the 4th, 11th, and 18th) our setters will put up 10 competition boulders. Each boulder will have a point score, with harder boulders scoring more points. Competitors will have from Monday at 5PM until close the following Sunday to complete the hardest boulders they can.
Each week of qualifying rounds will have a separate scorecard. Scorecards must be turned in at the front desk by close-of-business on Sunday to be counted! Make sure that you record not just what boulders you send, but how many attempts it takes you. We will use number of attempts as a tie-breaker in the event of ties from qualifiers. Also make sure you mark down which gender and experience category (Beginner V0-V3, Intermediate V4-V6, and Advanced V7+) you’d like to compete in. Don’t stress about picking the right experience category, we’ll keep an eye on scores and move you to a different category if necessary. Scorecards will be based on the honor system. Please fill yours out truthfully!
At the end of the qualifying weeks, we will tally up the scores of the five hardest boulders completed by each competitor. On Friday the 29th, the five highest scoring competitors from each category will take part in a finals round. During the finals, each competitor will have the opportunity to duke it out over the course of three boulders, with 4 minutes to attempt each boulder and 4 minutes of rest between boulders. Spectators are also welcome!
