17 Jan 2016 Mini Bouldering Ladder

The 2nd round of our Mini Works Bouldering Ladder has now been set on the new green and pink spotty problems. Results from the first round can be found here:

The 20 progressing climbs will stay up in the centre for around 4 weeks with the final round being set during February 1/2 term.  You can print off a score card here or pick one up from the Mini Works for £1.

Points are given on the number of attempts it takes for you to complete the boulder. You can have as many attempts on each boulder as you like over the course of the month. The point system is explained on the score cards.

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 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 3 rounds.

This is a fun competition set for children aged 5 – 14 years and not suitable for those taking part in the winter bouldering series in the Main Centre.
