Event Overview

8:00 AM – 11:00 AM

We all have to start somewhere, and bouldering is a great entry into the sport of climbing! As the simplest style of climbing, bouldering requires athletes to complete boulder problems without the encumbrance of a rope. Bouldering requires a serious blend of gymnastic ability and grip strength — something many kids have naturally! With up to 40 problems to choose from, competitors are scored by their four best ascents.
