What is the Woman Up Comp?

Our all-womxn’s comp on Saturday, September 22nd kicks off the entire Woman Up event. It will be set by the premier female routesetters in the country and is open to all levels. 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.

Scoring

Citizens

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!

Open

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.
