Preview Night

Fri, January 17th – 5:30pm-7:30pm


Preview Night is a free event for 1st – 5th graders and their parents to experience our Recreational Climbing Leagues in an informative, hands-on, and obligation-free setting.

The night begins with an overview of the leagues, safety orientation, and an explanation of the rules in competitive rock climbing. Climbers meet their new coaches and experience what the leagues are all about.

Parents are able to watch, learn, and participate in a Q&A session.

Boulder Scoring (Fall):

  1. Climbers will compete for a 3-hour block of time with problems of varying difficulty. They will have an unlimited number of attempts to complete as many problems as possible.
  2. There will be a minimum of 35 problems. The problems will be ordered to gradually get more difficult. Each problem will receive a point value. As the difficulty increases, so does the problem score.  
  3. Points are awarded for the completion of problems, only.
  4. Each Competitor will have a scorecard of all the problems listed, and completion must be signed off by 2 fellow competitors, a parent, or 1 officiating judge.
  5. Final score is the total of the top 5 completed problems. Attempts will be recorded, but only reviewed in the event of a tie. Climbers with the same score will be ranked according to fewest attempts.
  6. In order to “start” a route, climber must have control of start hold(s), and have both feet on the wall. Problems requiring a sit start will be indicated.
  7. In order to receive full points for a route or problem, the climber must match (control with both hands) on the finish hold or box.
  8. In order to give credit for a problem, a judge must see the entire problem Climbers must verify that the judge is observing before climbing the problem. If the judge does not observe the start of the problem, it will count as a trial but not a completion, even if the problem is completed.
