Events - February 2018
The fourth and final round of the Mini Works Winter Bouldering Ladder will be set on Friday 2nd February. Please all outstanding scorecards in to the Mini Works reception. Results from R3 will be published next week.
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 fourth round can be printed off here or pick one up from the Mini Works for £1.
The rules, this is a self marked competition so no cheating!!
1) An attempt starts as soon as your feet leave the floor
2) One hand must start on the numbered hold - finish by matching the top hold
3) Only use the black coloured holds used on the circuit. Aretes, volumes and wall features are allowed.
4) Hand your scorecard to reception when you have finished
Score will be split into male and female 5- 6 yrs / 7 – 8 yrs / 9 – 11 yrs / 12 – 14 yrs. Results from each round will be posted on the website and in the Mini Works. The overall winners will be announced after all 4 rounds. The top 3 scores from each competitor will be add together to find the overall Winter Bouldering Ladder Champions.
