NEWSFLASH… the Winter Bouldering Aggregate will continue to run until the end of August following the re-opening of Beacon Climbing Centre on Monday 10th August. More details to follow soon.
The Beacon Boulder Aggregate returns for the 2019/20 winter season, starting on Tuesday 8th October 2019 with 250+ boulder problems available to try during the 6 month aggregate period.
What is it?
An informal ‘aggregate style’ competition running from October to March and open to all climbers, whereby you score points for every designated Boulder Aggregate climb that you complete during the competition period. At the end of March, the climbers with the highest number of points in each of the gender/age categories will win an awesome prize courtesy of our event sponsors DMM CLIMBING and V12 OUTDOOR.
How does it work?
Enter by purchasing your score card from reception for £2, then try to climb as many of the designated Boulder Aggregate problems as you can.
Every boulder included in the competition is given a number, displayed next to the starting holds. Each boulder 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 will be added new problems every Tuesday on a fortnightly basis so you should have something new to try every session. Just remember that the aggregate works numerically with the highest problem numbers representing the newest boulders. Be tactical and try to tick the lowest numbers first before they are removed to make way for newer problems.
And finally… don’t forget to return your score card to reception when you leave after each session, otherwise we will not be able to record your points during our monthly scoring updates.
