2017/18 Beacon Winter Bouldering Aggregate.


The Beacon Winter Boulder Aggregate is an informal competition running from 26th September 2017 to 31st March 2018*, open to climbers of all ages and abilities. The format is designed to give you an extra motivational boost during the looong, dark winter period, with 250+ problems to try, spanning all grades.

*Note that the aggregate will not run from 31st October to 7th November due to BOULDER JAM UV. All existing boulder problems will be removed for the event.

How does it work?

Enter the Aggregate by purchasing your score card from reception for £2 (all proceeds donated to the Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team), then try to climb as many of the marked aggregate boulder problems as you can throughout the September to March duration.

Every boulder problem set during the Aggregate period will be included in the competition and will be given a number, displayed next to the starting holds. Each boulder problem can be attempted as many times as you like but must be climbed “clean” from the starting holds to successfully matching the finishing hold to qualify as a successful ascent.

If you successfully climb a problem, place a tick on your score card next to the relevant number, revel in your glory for a moment, then go and try another problem! Every problem is worth 1 point irrespective of difficulty, so the more your climb the higher your cumulative score becomes.

We aim to add new problems every week so you should have something new to try every session. Just remember that the aggregate works numerically with the highest Aggregate problem numbers representing the newest problems. Be tactical and try to tick the lowest numbers first before they are removed to make way for newer problems.

Please return your score card to reception when you leave after each session, otherwise we will not be able to record your points. At the end of March, the climbers with the highest scores in each of the gender/age categories will win an awesome prize courtesy of our sponsors.
