It's back!!  OVERhang and PGBRS are hosting a citizen boulder competition on Saturday, April 1, 2023 - as part of the PEAK Climbing Festival .  Suitable for everybody and every BODY!

Three categories:

  • Youth (13 and under as a guideline... not a hard cutoff!)
  • Recreational (grades V3 and under) - recommended for those newer to climbing
  • Competitive (grades V3-V6) - open to everyone that's pushing themselves!  The more competitors in this category, the more fun it is.  No need to be intimidated - it's still super fun!

We will follow the Scramble format for the first two components (everyone is climbing and collaborating at the same time... it's not like everyone is watching you).  Top-scoring women and men in the competitive Scramble go on to Finals, which are run in the World Cup format. The Finals are an exciting event for all to watch - you'll want to be there, e ven if you're not competing in the finals - it's a hoot!

The approximate timing for each category is 9-11:30am for Youth and Recreational Scramble, and 11:45am-2:30pm for Competitive Scramble, with Finals around 4:30pm... followed by an EVENING SOCIAL!

Registration fees:
  • $55 Recreational and Competitive
  • $50 for youth under 13 years registering in the Youth category
  • We recognize that we have some young crushers under 13 that can fully hold their own in the Competitive field - we do hope they register in Competitive!
  • Registrations include a PEAK hat, a unique day of fun events, and entry into door prizes!
  • Free for spectators
