Accompanying the release of the USA Climbing Rulebook on September 1st, USA Climbing announced that the 2017-2018 Bouldering season Championship events will use a new Multi-Zone scoring methodology. Additionally, a new Redpoint 'Modified' Format has been introduced for the Qualification rounds of the National Cup Series and as an option for Local competitions. This document, in conjunction with the updated Rules video highlights key rules in further detail to help ensure that USA Climbing members are well-informed as we approach the Championships event season.
We encourage all those involved in climbing competitions, including athletes, coaches, parents and our dedicated routesetters, judges and volunteers, to thoroughly review relevant sections of the Rulebook.
