The Next Competition
Starting In Just

You must sign up online below by 12 noon on the Thursday before each competition.

The local walls started this up in 2013 and there are now around 100 regular entrants. Each competition is hosted by a different wall, generally Chichester College, Hi-Rock Hayling Island, Calshot and now Boulder Shack.

These competitions are inclusive and suitable for all abilities of junior climbers. Usually, we climb on top-ropes but with Boulder Shack now hosting too, we’ll see the odd bouldering comp too.

Each category is split by gender and age

2019 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002

Each climber will have 5 top rope climbs and must attempt them all, they will receive 100 points for topping a route. Each climber will then have 1 additional attempt that they can use on any their routes that they have not yet topped. The highest score of any attempt will be counted and an additional 1 point will be given for completing a route on the first attempt.

All climbers in all categories will climb on top-rope and not on a lead rope. This ensures that this competition remains a grass root comp and inclusive for all.

There will be a 25 problem open comp with bonus holds half way up each route. You’ll get 3 points if you hold (whilst in control) the bonus hold with one or both hands, and you’ll get 4 points if you hold both your hands on the finish hold for 3 seconds.

This is a non-profit event costing just £11 per entry. This goes towards some prizes and to the hosting wall to pay for route setting for the comp.
