BOULDER BASH SCORES BELOW:
Boulder Bash is a 6 week boulder competition hosted by Central Rock Gym Harvard Square.
Each week on Mondays as usual, the setting team will reset 1 section with new routes by 4pm. These routes will be marked with their point value 100-1500 if you finish the route. Competitors will log their hardest 3 ascents per week on a scorecard we will give you. CRG Staff will tally the scores, and the sum of these scores will comprise 1/3 of your Final Score. Scorecards must be turned in to the desk at the end of your climb, and we will store them until your next visit.
On Saturday, August 12th, the setting team will do a larger reset for a Final Day Event, and participants will have only that day to log their hardest 3 ascents of this new set. This day is important to attend and will weigh more in determining your final score.
Prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced (Non-Binary, Women, Men) Divisions! This event is an awesome chance to challenge yourself to climb your hardest and see what you’re capable of, while having some fun competing against others of a similar skill level!
Pick up your score card at the front desk any time that works for you, comp starts on July 3rd, and get crushing!

Boulder Bash August 12th
How it Works
- You will compete to send your hardest climbs, earning points in the process with the hope of out-scoring other competitors. Routes will be labeled with a point value instead of a grade.
- Participants will earn points for each route they send, which they will record on the provided scorecard.
- Sends must be verified by obtaining a witnesses’ initials on the scorecard.
- Each route will remain active to score points on for at least 7 days, after which, those routes will revert to our standard grading and points can no longer be earned.
- Participants are welcome to climb and track their points every day during the Bash.
- As new routes are set during the Boulder Bash, they will be labeled with a point value instead of a grade. To earn points, you will complete applicable routes and record the point value of each route on your scorecard. Each set will remain active to score points on for at least 7 days, after which time those routes will revert to standard grading and points can no longer be earned.
- The total of your top 3 sends from each week throughout the Bash will determine your Individual Score. (We will drop the lowest week’s score, great if you are on vacation too).
- In the event of a tie, each participants attempts will be totaled and compared to the other team.
- To earn points on a climb, you must complete it in one go, also called a “send.”
- Criteria for a send:
- Climbers may only use holds that are part of their route to help them progress towards the finish. All routes will be monochromatic. All volumes on for all climbs.
- In order to complete a climb, the climber must show control of the top of the wall or the finish hold(s) with both hands.
- Climbs must be completed “clean,” that is, without falling.
- You must have a witness to sign off that you sent the climb. This could be anyone as long as they can visually confirm that you completed the route in accordance with the above criteria.
- Attempts will be used as a tie-breaker for those who have the same point value accrued.
- Every time a climber pulls onto the wall counts as an attempt. For example, if a climber falls 6 times while initially projecting a route, and sends it the next day in one go, that would count as 7 total attempts to complete the route in it’s entirety without any falls.
- If a climber ‘flashes’ the climb, or completes it on the first try, it is considered 1 attempt.
