Bouldering Competition | Tuesday, March 20th | (11am - 8pm)

In bouldering competitions, the aim is to master five to six short boulder problems ranging from V0 up to V8 with as few attempts as possible. Each problem will range in points with the harder problems being worth more points. If competitors complete the problem on their first attempt they will earn the maximum amount of points. Each time the participant falls, they will lose a portion of the potential points they could of earn. We will be having both a men’s and women’s beginner and intermediate division. We will also be having a raffle in which all participants that compete at three of the problems in their division can be placed in to win smaller prizes. Competitors will have two and a half hours to earn as many points as they can with all prizes being announced the following day. 

Finale Competition | Tuesday, April 24th | (11am-8pm) 

It's the time of the semester to finish strong, so come out one last time and work on BOTH the boulder and tower climbs! You've made it this far so, come together one last time at the CSUB Climbing Series Finale. And yes, Adidas will be there again!
