ABK Winter Bouldering League Round 2

12 Jan 2017 18:00 15 Jan 2017 20:00

 

 

DETAILS

Round 2 of the ABK Winter Bouldering League is an open to all competition that will run from Thursday 12th December at 6pm to closing on Sunday 15th (8pm).

 

Time & Date

Thursday 12th December at 6pm to closing on Sunday 15th (8pm).

 

Format

As with Round 1 there will be 30 problems to try set on the Berghaus competition wall, but the scoring will be a little different from your standard 10, 7, 4 scoring!  Similar to Tout à Blocs (from where the competition's French clothing sponsor hails from) each problem has a maximum of 1000 points topped divided between everyone who does the problem, regardless of number of attempts.  This means if 50 people do a problem it'll be worth 20 points, but if a single person tops it then it's worth 1000, with highest overall score winning.  This can make things a little tactical with the multi day format - if you want max points; come and work the hard stuff, then rest up and send on Sunday!

 

Scorecards

Scorecards will be free this round & are available from reception any time and are available from Thursday to Sunday.  You can keep hold of your scorecard until 8pm on Sunday, so you can try the 30 problems at your leisure, but they must be handed in by closing to count. There are ABK goodies for the winners as well as a prize draw for returned scorecards so you can win something just for entering.

 

overall PRIZES

Following this round prizes will be awarded for the overall female & male winners over round 1 & round 2, with each able to choose an ABK hoody or pair of trousers.
