Climbing Competitions

2017-2018

November 18th, 2017 10:00am-1:00pm

Burn Out is open to all current APSU students, faculty, staff, spouses, affiliates and community members. Participants must sign all paperwork before competing. Competition starts at 10 am.

In this competition, every climber gets an individual scorecard that has all the boulder problems on it. There are 24 – 30 individual problems. As the climber attempts different problems, they will need to have 1 person sign off on the scorecard upon completion from start to finish of the boulder problem. The climber may climb as many problems as possible in the allotted time. Once time is up, the top 5 scores are taken and then tallied and the top three participants in each group will receive prizes. Door prizes are also given at each competition.

Spring 2018 date and event details coming soon!

University Recreation is proud to host this annual competition. Ascension is open to all current APSU students, faculty, staff, spouses, affiliates and community members. Participants must sign all paperwork before competing.

This competition is what as known as a "Flash" competition. In this competition format competitors can watch each other climb, each climber only gets three tries. You may talk to the other competitors and spectators about the routes, exchange "beta" and sequences. However, while you are climbing you are not allowed to receive any "beta". You receive points by reaching and moving past holds. So the higher you go the more points you receive. If you complete a route on your first try (Flash) you receive a bonus. Scores are then tallied, and the top three participants in each group will receive prizes. Door prizes are also given at each competition.
