Description

Are you guys ready for Summit Bouldering League?! CAN YOU EVEN?!

If you have ever been a part of a league before (softball, bowling, ultimate field knitting, etc.) then this is gonna be pretty similar! In short: sign up with a team of up to 6 people (but at least 4) at your chosen gym, we'll host meets once a week at your gym for four weeks, and we will score y'alls performance based on a handicap. We will have a brand new wall set every week - we will pick our favorite problems from the new set (one in each grade!) and each competitor will have five tries to send one of these “Challenge Problems.” The goal is to send as hard as you can! Your final score at the end of each night is compiled of your 4 hardest sends while projecting that night, along with your Challenge Problem. We will have a max of 8 teams from each gym, and post their running scores throughout the four weeks — at the end we will tally everything up, and the gym with the best performing team will get to host our final competition on Friday, April 19th, where we pit the top-scoring team from each gym against each other in an awesome onsight competition / after-party!

  • Starts March 18th - runs for four weeks straight with finals on the fifth week!

  • It's $15 per person, and each team can have up to 6 members - but at least four. 18+ please!

  • The top four scores from each team will be counted each meet — so it'll hurt ya if only 3 team members show up! No substitutions please — your team at the start of the League will be your team til the end!

  • We encourage y'all to come up with a creative team name, and ridiculous uniforms are strongly encouraged.

  • Meet times will be the same each week: 6 to 9 p.m. — you'll have this time to make the fours hardest routes you can while open projecting, and a Challenge Problem!

  • Denton and Carrollton's meet days will be Mondays.

  • Dallas meet days will be Thursdays.

  • Fort Worth's meet days will be Fridays.

  • With our handicap system, a V0 climber can beat even a V12 climber. We will collect everyone's hardest send during before the league starts, and weight their performance based on that. You will receive full points for every climb sent at your limit, bonus points for problems sent above your limit (no sandbagging! We will move people's handicaps if their sending limits change), but will receive less points for problems sent below your limit. More scoring info can be found here.

  • Your top four sends from the night are counted, as well as your hardest sent Challenge Problem. For gyms on a circuit grading system, we will give y'all the grades during league nights.

  • It will be on a first-come-first-serve basis to get your chance to hop on the Challenge Problems.

  • Having an off week? That’s ok - each team gets one Bonus Problem they can choose to use at any point during the four regular weeks of League! Once they send their Challenge Problem, one team member can choose to climb another Challenge Problem for points - whether it’s the Challenge Problem one grade harder than the one they just sent, or they can climb a problem at their handicap that was part of the new set but not chosen as the Challenge Problem. They get five tries on this new problem - no redos for the Bonus Problem!

One team member needs to be the Team Captain! When signing up, please note your team name, and whether or not you are Team Captain. Again, we totally encourage ridiculousness for team names!

OR, if you are having a hard time wrangling up folks, we have the option of signing up solo! If we get enough solos signed up, we will assign them a team! If you have a friend or two you'd prefer to be placed on a team with, you can let us know and we'll make sure y'all stick together.

Ok, good luck you guys, and MAY THE BEST TEAM WIN!

When signing up, make sure you put your team's name down - if signing up solo, please put "Solo" as your team. PLEASE put a valid email address down - we will use email a lot through the duration of the comp! If signing up as a team, please make sure all your team members are signed up before the League's start on March 18th, or we will refund your spots if you don't make the team size minimum.
