  • Overview

    ➢ There are two (2) divisions: Men’s & Women’s Beginner, Men’s & Women’s Open.

    • The highest scorers in Men’s & Women’s Beginner receive prizes. The top five (5) competitors in both Men’s & Women’s Open will compete in a finals round, and the top three (3) receive prizes.
    • As participants choose their division, Outdoor Adventures reserves the right to change a climber to a higher division if they exceed the expectations for their chosen division.
    • Fly Higher Climbing Competition is a redpoint-style competition where competitors will be permitted 6 hours to climb as many different routes as they wish as time allows. The Open Division will have a finals round. The top five (5) men’s and women’s climbers advance to the finals round from the Redpoint round.

  • Competition Rules

    • Competitors declare their intention to attempt a route by handing their scorecard to the judge who will call competitors in order of the scorecards received.
    • Competitors or judges may not give “Beta,” (advice) to a competitor while another competitor is attempting the route. Beta may be given to a competitor between attempts if asked.
    • The climber must have full control over the start hold(s) with their feet off the ground to start a route. The climber is finished with a boulder problem when they demonstrate control of the final handhold, fall, or use an off-route hold.
    • A climber may call a technical incident. A technical incident occurs when the climber’s progress is impeded by some external event (i.e., loose hold, etc.).
    • Upon completing a route, the judge will award the appropriate number of points and note this on the scorecard.
    • A one (1) is marked in the attempt’s column when a competitor flashes the route. They will receive a 10% flash bonus.
    • The climber must turn in their scoresheet to a judge before leaving after their climbing session. The final score consists of the climber’s top five (5) route scores.
