Boulder Bash and Two Year Birthday! 

Get Tickets

It’s time to CELEBRATE! It’s been a while since we have been able to hold our extraordinary Boulder Bash event (due to Covid) PLUS we’ve been open for TWO years!! It’s been an amazing two years so what better way to party than a fun filled, community event and you’re ALL invited!
Boulder Bash & Birthday will be fun and relaxed event for all ages and abilities. Come on down and join the fun, all ages and abilities are welcome 🙂 There will be prizes, treats, challenges, and more.
Special thanks to RAB for sponsoring some incredible prizes 🙂
 
REMEMBER the competition is held on existing boulders, with some new climbers in our regular re-sets, so you can get practicing on your projects in the weeks leading up to the event, and send them on the day!
*Finals will be brand new climbs*
 
INFO:
Each boulder problem in the gym will be allocated points depending on the difficulty. You’ll have 2 hours to climb your hardest boulders and the top ten boulders you complete will count to your final score.
*Climbs within a colour will be given different points depending on their difficulty. As our colours overlap slightly in grades, boulders will be graded for how difficult they are rather than which colour they are. Get to know your climbs! For example, a hard yellow might be higher points than an easy red.
Fresh off the Blocs category will not have a final, these champions will be decided off boulder bash round scores. The top 5 people in both Cuttin’ Shapes and Bust a Move will enter a final to determine the champion in each category.
 
CATEGORIES:
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!!
