Oakwood is hosting a 4 round summer boulder league this June starting on the 20th with round 1! It’s a fun bouldering competition open to anyone above the age of 7 to challenge themselves, and try problems that you would never usually give a go!
With competitions like this you can surprise yourself on how many of the problems you achieve. Grades are not placed next to the routes so you don’t automatically dismiss a problem. This means that even if you aren’t aiming for first, it can still be a fun event to go to!
For this league, we will be using TopLogger. TopLogger is an app for your phone which shows all the different climbs on our walls and their respective difficulties. For the event however, the difficulties of the climbs will not be shown. As a participant in the league, you will be able to log your climbs through the app to get an overall score by the end of each round.
Individual routes have a total of 1000 points which are divided by the number of people who successfully climb the route. If you flash a route then you gain 20% bonus points on top of that score.
Rules for climb submissions:
To start a route, both hands and feet must be on the marked holds in control. To finish, you must be able to match the top hold controlled for 3 seconds.
Only tick ‘flash’ if you have climbed the route on your first attempt.
Male Over 18s
Female Over 18s
Male Under 18s
Female Under 18s
Prizes and Scoring:
Every point you earn is an additional ticket into our raffle for that round across all categories
