Format

BOULDER ROUNDS

Boulder only rounds will consist of 8 problems and will be run in a scramble format. Athletes will have 2 hours to complete the 8 problems. 

Scoring - The scoring system to be used will be individual scores for each hold. Each athlete will have a maximum of 5 attempts. Holds will be marked from a starting value and finishing at 59 points for the top hold. Matching the top hold will award the climber 60 points.

 

Getting to the top and matching on the 1st attempt will gain an additional 4 bonus points, 2nd attempt 3 bonus points, 3rd attempt 2 bonus points, 4th attempt 1 bonus point down to the 5th attempt which you get 0 bonus points.

 

So getting to the top on your 1st attempt will get you 64 points.

Your overall score for the round will be the sum of your 8 boulder scores.

Each attempt will have a time limit of 3 minutes.

ROPED ROUNDS

There will be four roped routes (top ropes for E and D categories and lead routes for C, B, A and Junior categories)

There will be a maximum of 6 minutes for each route.

The scoring for this round will follow the old system.

Top Rope

The top hold will be worth 99 points each scoring hold descending will be worth 2 points less, all the way down to the start hold. Matching you hands on the top hold will score you the maximum 100 points. Making a positive move towards a hold will gain you an extra point.

At the end of the 4 climbs the four scores will be added together giving you a total score.

 

Lead Rope

The top hold will be worth 99 points each scoring hold descending will be worth 2 points less, all the way down to the start hold. Clipping the top clip will give you a maximum 100 points. Making a positive move towards a hold will gain you an extra point.
