What is the Woman Up Comp?

Our 2022 Woman Up competition kicks off on Friday, September 9th. It will be set by an all-women routesetting crew and is open to women and non-binary folx of all levels and ages. Whether you’re an actual pro or you’ve never competed before, you’ll find high-quality routes at every grade and tons of fun at both the Citizens and Open comp levels.

Everyone is encouraged to spectate, cheer, and support the competitors!

Comp Types


The Citizens Comp runs from 11am to 4pm and will be broken down into three difficulty ranges (Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced) and four age categories:

–16 17-35 36-49 50+

Now’s your chance to meet your peers and join in a little friendly competition! The Citizens Comp is self-scored. Whenever you’re done climbing, you can check out the Community Market, food trucks, and beer while you hang out and wait for the Finals at 6pm—it’s gonna be quite a show!


Women and non-binary folx who are ready for the big leagues will want to compete in the Open for a chance at the Finals and a cash purse. Put your skills to the test in the qualifying redpoint round. The top 6 climbers from Qualifiers will advance to the Onsight Finals for an all-out crushfest. The finals will be a World Cup format, 4 minutes on, 4 minutes off, with ten-second transitions.

There are no age categories for the Open. Just be ready to try your hardest! The qualifying redpoint round for the Open takes place from 4:00pm to 7:00pm on Friday, Sept 9th. Open competitors will climb on 10 judged qualifier boulder problems. There is a mandatory rules meeting at 3:45 pm before Qualifiers climbing begins, so be sure to arrive at the gym by 3:30 pm at the latest.



When you arrive and register, you will get a scorecard—keep this!

The Citizens Comp is self-scored. After you complete a problem, find it on your scorecard and circle the points associated with how many attempts it took you to complete it. One try? Two tries? Three tries? You get the idea. Have your spotter or someone who saw you complete the climb initial each score.

At the end of the day, turn in your scorecard and the staff will add up your top five highest scores for your total. Easy. Plus, turning in your scorecard automatically enters you into our raffle. Once you’re done climbing just kick back, relax, and wait for the rain of prizes!


The Open Comp routes will require a judge’s initials for a send to be counted towards your score. Your overall score is determined by tallying up your top five scores.

The top 6 climbers from Qualifiers will advance to the Finals round at 6pm on Saturday.


Includes Friday night entry to the kick-off party, entry to the competition, a Woman Up shirt, a discount at the food truck, and a swag bag for the first 350 participants to check in for the event. 100% of competition and spectator passes are donated to a non-profit that increases diversity in outdoor recreation.
