What is That Boulder Comp (TBC)?
That Boulder Comp (previously NuKids) is our extremely popular social comp aimed at those climbing up to font 6b+. It kicks off the The Big Flash Weekend on the Friday and has been fully booked for the last 4 years. In fact, we even have to turn people away at the door because they hadn’t registered online!
Due to demand, there are two 3 hour ‘TBC’ sessions on the Friday. The first starts at 16:00 and the evening session starting at 19:15; each with 125 spaces. The earlier session is always popular with families and younger climbers and the evening session is mostly adults. If you fancy a long weekend then why not finish work early on the Friday and enter the 16:00 session? This will help free up spaces in the evening!
At the end of the 2 sessions, the scores will be combined and the top 3 in each category will be called to the podium before The Flash Championship Final on the Sunday Evening (time to be confirmed).
HEAD HERE TO REGISTER!
Who can enter?
Anyone of any age! As long as you’re generally climbing up to/around 6a (V0 to V2/3), then this competition is for you. However, if you can fairly consistently flash most 6a’s and some 6b’s (V3+4’s), then this may not be for you; you’ll risk being a ‘TopGun’ (see below) and should probably be entering The Flash Championship. Head here for age categories.
How does it work?
Register for session A or B online and make a £10 donation (100% of which goes to charity) to confirm your place, turn up, collect your scoresheet, and then get climbing. Yes, it’s that simple.
There are 30 problems to climb and you ‘self score’ based on the number of attempts it takes to climb them. You get 10 points if you ‘Flash’ it (climb it on your first attempt); 7 points for a successful second attempt, 4 points for a 3rd attempt, 2 points if you manage to climb it within the session (unlimited attempts) and then 1 point if you only manage to get to the bonus hold, but do not ‘top’ the problem.
Enter On Your Own Or As A Team
You can enter as an individual or as team, which quadruples the fun! Teams need to have 4 members of mix gender, but be warned! If one of your team Top Guns, your team score will not count. Select your team mates carefully!
