The Details:

What is boulder league?
Adult Bouldering League is a socially distanced league for members to team up and earn points together. ABL is a chance to virtually climb with friends and 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. You score points based on climbing the new set. Climbers have 7 days to get the most points as possible on the new set, until the next set comes out. 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 raffle with tons of awesome swag. The winners will get glory and bragging rights until the next league!

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.

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.
