Climbing Comp Overview
Join us for the 4th installation of the Wisconsin Indoor Climbing Series! UW River Falls is excited to announce the first annual Climbing Comp. Climbers can expect over 30 top rope routes on 10 ropes ranging from 5.5 all the way up to 5.13, all set on the newest climbing wall in Wisconsin. All skill levels are welcome an encouraged to compete; scores will be tallied and placed into beginner, intermediate, and advanced divisions for males and females. Registration is now open at go.uwrf.edu/foa; the cost is $30 for any UW or UM student, and $35 for community members. A t-shirt is included in registration.
Off The Wall is an open-format, which means any climber may attempt any route as soon as it becomes available. Scoring will be based off of the number of attempts needed to flash a route. Each failed attempt will decrease the total amount of points awarded, with the lowest score being awarded after 3 attempts. Routes will be monochromatic and belayers will sign off all score cards. In the event of a tie, the amount of attempts will be taken into consideration, and the climber with the lesser amount of attempts will win.
