Northern Rocks Boulder Bash is a fun and relaxed event for all ages and abilities.
We’re climbing to raise funds – 50% of all entry fees will be donated to Cancer Society NZ.
There will be prizes from our event sponsors Rab Equipment, coffee, fun climbs and an awesome community. Come on down and join the fun!
Every boulder problem in the gym will have a set number of points. You’ll have 2 hours to climb your hardest boulders and the top ten boulders you complete will count to your final score.
Categories will be decided based on ability. You decide on your category but we reserve the right to bump you up a category if you have sandbagged yourself (you’re better than you say!) this is Honesty based!!
Fresh off the Blocs (beginner): You’re new to climbing and if you’ve been to Northern Rocks before, you’re climbing Orange or Blue boulders, projecting purple. First timers welcome!
Grade reference V3 and below.
Cuttin’ Shapes (intermediate): You’ve been climbing for a little while, climbing greens and purples and projecting yellow.
