What is the Summer Bouldering League?

Here to foster a sense of community within each Depot Climbing site, Summer Bouldering Leagues inject a bit of friendly competition and an opportunity for climbers of all abilities to experience a competitive environment without pressure.

6 Depot Climbing centres will host 3 rounds of the Summer Bouldering League competition, Round 1 will take place in June, Round 2 will take place in July and the final Round 3 will take place in August.

Rounds will be open from the day the competition builders are set until the centre closes on the Sunday of that week. Full calendar of rounds can be found below.

Scores will be submitted online, with results available 48 hours of completion of the round.

How do they work?

It’s all so simple! Each round will consist of 20 boulders, ranging from V0-V8, climb as many of them as you can, in as few attempts as possible, all while having fun! The scoring works:

  • 1st attempt = 10 points
  • 2nd attempt= 7 points
  • 3rd attempt = 4 points
  • 4+ attempts = 1 point

R3 scores will count double.

Problems will be up on the walls until the reset for the next round, however, scores only count if submitted before your centre closes on the Sunday of the round, your scores won’t be counted if not submitted during the rounds time.

Each scorecard entered per round will enter into our Round Raffle, with great prizes on offer at random to anyone taking part in the event, big scores don’t guarantee prizes!

There is also THE BIG RAFFLE.  Want to win a pair of climbing shoes of your choice from our stock? Every scorecard submitted for SBL rounds (max 1per person, per round) will be entered into a draw, for one lucky winner from across all participating sites to win a brand new pair of climbing shoes!

The overall SBL Winners will be determined per site by the top 3 competitors in each category, with the highest overall scores taking the win.  Round 3 scores count double! So don’t miss out!
