Comp rules

• Our Birthday competition will be held on our La Sportiva Competition wall and the slabs opposite.
• It will start at 3pm and finish at 6pm on Sunday 2nd September.
• There will be 20 problems to try; 14 on the competition wall and 6 on the slabs.
• This competition will be slightly different to normal. You will be able to try the problems as many times as you like to try to complete the problem during the competition times.
• Each problem will be broken down into sections. Points will be awarded for how high a competitor gets on each problem.
• To claim a top of a problem the top hold must be held with 2 hands, in control.
• If a problem is ‘flashed’ (the top is reached on your first go) then you will be awarded 11 points.
• 10 points will be awarded if a competitor gets to the top of a problem on any attempt after the flash go.
• There will be numbers next to selected holds on each problem indicating how many points will be awarded for holding those particular holds in control.
• Each competitor can only claim points for the highest scoring hold they reach for each problem, with a maximum of 11 points being awarded if the problem is flashed and 10 points if it is topped on any go after a flash go.
