Open Category Qualifying Round

All Open competitors must climb in the Qualifying Round.

Qualifiers will consist of 10 problems for each gender category. Scoring will be a modified redpoint round based on tops and attempts to high point—therefore, a perfect score would be flashing every problem. There will be judges keeping score so you can concentrate on just trying your hardest!

The top eight competitors in each gender category will advance to the Finals Round in the evening at 7pm. Feel free to swing by the gym early to join the festivities and check out the vendors and games.
