Round 3 Mini Works Bouldering Ladder
The third round of the Mini Works Winter Bouldering Ladder will be set on Friday 5th January.
Any outstanding score cards should be handed in to the Mini Works reception.
The bouldering ladder is a fun competition set over 4 months. Each month a new circuit of 20 progressive boulder problems will be set and points awarded to climbers depending on the number of attempts it takes to complete each boulder. Participants can have as many attempts as they like over the course of the month and at the end of each round scores will be announced and a new circuit of 20 problems set.
The ladder is suitable for 5 - 14 year olds and within the 20 problem circuit climbs 1 - 6 will be set suitable for 5 - 6 year olds, 1 - 10 suitable for 7 - 8 year olds, 1 - 16 suitable for 9 - 11 year olds and 1 - 20 suitable for 12 - 14 year olds. Of course anyone can try and complete any climb within the circuit, this is just a guide.
The point system is explained on the score cards. Score cards for the third round can be printed off here or pick one up from the Mini Works for £1.
