What is the Woman Up Comp?

Our 2024 Woman Up competition kicks off on Friday, February 9th. It will be set by an all-women and nonbinary routesetting crew and is intended for women and nonbinary 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 on Saturday, February 10th. It is broken down into three difficulty ranges (Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced) and four age categories:

0-16 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 snag a beer while you hang out and wait for the Finals at 6pm—it’s gonna be quite a show!


Women and nonbinary 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. There are no age categories for the Open. Just be ready to try your hardest!

Put your skills to the test in the qualifying redpoint round, taking place from 4:00pm to 9:00pm on Friday, February 9th. There are rules meetings at 3:45pm, 4:45pm, and 5:45pm. Open competitors will be scored by judges as they climb the Qualifiers’ 10 boulder problems.

The top 6 finishers from Qualifiers will advance to the onsight Open Finals for an all-out crushfest. Held on Saturday from 6pm to 9pm, Open Finals will be a World Cup format: 4 minutes on, 4 minutes off, with ten-second transitions.



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 and have turned in your score card, 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 toward your score. Your overall score is determined by tallying up your top five scores.

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


100% of the proceeds from competition fees and spectator passes will be donated to Bolt & Revolt—a non-profit creating a global coalition of women, non-binary, trans & genderqueer climbing setters that creates space to uplift, support, & empower our community.


In addition to entry, the first 350 participants to check in for the event will get a Woman Up shirt, a discount at the food truck, and a swag bag.
