Boulder Bash

Due to COVID-19, Boulder Bash has been postponed for Fall 2020.

Boulder Bash is a one-day bouldering competition that brings climbers from all over the southeast to compete. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Southeastern Climbers Coalition. Climbers will receive a t-shirt!


Competition fees:  

  • $15 for UGA students/faculty/staff
  • $20 for non-UGA
  • $25 for day-of registrations (if space available)​

Event Description and Scoring
Boulder Bash will consist of 3 divisions. Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced (Male and female divisions for each). Each division will have approximately 20-25 bouldering problems, and each problem will be assigned a specific point value. Climbers who successfully complete a problem will receive the corresponding number of points. If climbers flash a problem (successfully complete the problem with no failed attempts), they will receive a 10% bonus for that problem. For example, if a problem is worth 350 points and a climber flashes the problem, the climber will receive 350 + 35 (385) total points for the problem. No points will be deducted for failed attempts, but a climber must successfully complete an entire problem from start to finish in order to receive any points. Partially completed problems do not receive points. The climber(s) in each division at the end of the competion will be declared the winners.
