What is the Adult Bouldering League?
Momentum’s Adult Bouldering League is a social league in which groups of climbers will meet once a week to climb together and earn points for their team. Each climbing session will begin with a huddle hosted by our League Facilitator in which updates and developments will be shared. Team standings will be posted weekly. Teams must be co-ed and can carry between 4 and 6 team members, 18 and older.

Scoring & Ranking
Boulder Problem Points – Using the V-Max Handicap System
Setting your V-Max: Think of the highest grade you have been able to complete recently with some regularity. That will be your “Max V”. Your points are then derived from that baseline.
|V-MAX||Climbed: V0||Climbed: V1||Climbed: V2||Climbed: V3||Climbed: V4||Climbed: V5||Climbed: V6||Climbed: V7||Climbed: V8||Climbed: V9|
|V1||80 pts||100 pts||120 pts||140 pts||-||-||-||-||-||-|
|V2||60 pts||80 pts||100 pts||120 pts||140 pts||-||-||-||-||-|
|V3||40 pts||60 pts||80 pts||100 pts||120 pts||140 pts||-||-||-||-|
|V4||20 pts||40 pts||60 pts||80 pts||100 pts||120 pts||140 pts||-||-||-|
|V5||0 pts||20 pts||40 pts||60 pts||80 pts||100 pts||120 pts||140 pts||-||-|
|V6||0 pts||0 pts||20 pts||40 pts||60 pts||80 pts||100 pts||120 pts||140 pts||-|
|V7||0 pts||0 pts||0 pts||20 pts||40 pts||60 pts||80 pts||100 pts||120 pts||140 pts|
|V8||0 pts||0 pts||0 pts||0 pts||20 pts||40 pts||60 pts||80 pts||100 pts||120 pts|
|V9||0 pts||0 pts||0 pts||0 pts||0 pts||20 pts||40 pts||60 pts||80 pts||100 pts|
Example: a V5 climber who climbs a V5 receives 100 points, if they climb a V4 then they receive 80 points and a V6 would be at 120 points. With the Handicap System, any climber who climbs a boulder that is the same grade as their V-Max will receive 100 points. This allows climbers of all abilities to earn points in equal measure for their team. Our table only goes to two grades above your current V-Max in order to discourage cheating (sandbagging). If you feel you have gotten stronger, you can update your V-Max by contacting your ABL Facilitator.
Weekly Team Score = The top 5 hardest boulders completed by each team member, divided by the number of team members in attendance.
Team Ranking: will be calculated as the sum of team’s weekly scores.
Boulder problems logged for points must be ‘sent’ during the league meetup. All points must be logged in a timely manner to maintain leader board accuracy.
Each boulder problem can only be counted once per team member, per season (repeats aren’t worth points).
