Registration

Please sign up early to give us an idea of how many weenies to roast. You can still sign up the day of the comp. So far it's free! Be cool to the BLM and maybe we can keep it that way.


2016 Registration Form now open!

(Deadline for an AWESOME comp shirt is March 11th, so sign up early people!)


We will sign people in at the main Box Canyon parking lot the day of the comp from 7:30 am-8:30 am. See map (look for P by Waterfall):

Expect to sign a waiver when you sign in on Saturday!

Comp Format

We will have a list of eligible boulder problems and their point values available on the day of the comp. Start bouldering at 8:00 am and turn in your scorecards by 4:30 pm at Waterfall parking or Unbeatable parking (turn in your scorecards even if you don't think you did so hot for a chance at the raffle). Only top 6 climbs of the day count. Unless you enter under BOB's Century, where all your points count!

Categories:
Beginner V0-V2
Intermediate V3-V5
Advanced V6-V10
Mutant V10 and up

Sandbaggers will be called out and publicly humiliated!
