What is boulder league:
Adult Bouldering League is a social league for members to meet weekly, climb together, and earn points for their team. ABL is a chance to climb with friends and even meet some new ones, improve personal climbing and just have fun with a smidge of competition. Climbers of all abilities are welcome to participate. We use a handicap system so that anyone can compete, no matter how hard you climb.

How it works:
Every week climbers will climb at the gym of their choice. Using the Kaya Climb app, climbers will log the boulders that they complete. Kaya will reflect not only your team’s score but your individual score as well, which will be made up of each member’s top 3 routes completed each week. At the end of 7 weeks, there will be a comp which will include a raffle with lots of great prizes and food. The winners will get glory and bragging rights until the next league!

The Details:
The League will run for 7 weeks, from January 20 – March 6, with our end of season comp being held on March 6 at Lehi.
Cost: $23+tax (to be paid at the gym), registration does not include entry to the facility.

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

Teams will have a weekly and a Total score. The weekly team score is an average of the score of all the team members and drops the lowest score. The total team score is a sum of every weekly score.

V-MAX Climbed v0 Climbed v1 Climbed v2 Climbed v3 Climbed v4 Climbed v5 Climbed v6 Climbed v7 Climbed v8 Climbed V9 Climbed V10 Climbed V11
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

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 speaking to your ABL Facilitator.

DO NOT try sand bagging (low-balling your handicap), you will be caught, and bumped.
