Time to get up. #GetGritty. Leave your mark on the city.
Brooklyn Boulders is psyched to combine strength and steel in Chicago’s annual citizen’s redpoint bouldering competition. If you have the guts, we’ll provide the glory (and by “glory” we mean $1,000 in cash and prizes from Arc’teryx, Butora, The North Face, FrictionLabs, and Cotopaxi).
All levels welcome.
Males and females will compete in four categories:
Recreational (V0- V2)
Intermediate (V3- V4)
Advanced (V5- V6)
Competition format is redpoint. You will have two and a half hours to climb and send as many problems as you can. Each problem will have assigned point values. If you send the problem, get 2 witnesses to initial. Your top five scores will be your total score.
You will be responsible for marking number of attempts. Each failed attempt will result in a five point penalty, with a maximum of 15 points deducted from your final total.
