If you love lactic and forearm pump is your thing then this is the competition for you… The Beacon Winter Lead Aggregate is an informal competition running from 27th 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 100+ routes to try, spanning all grades.
How does it work?
Enter the Aggregate by purchasing your score card from reception for £2 (all proceeds donated to the North Wales Bolt Fund), then try to climb as many of the marked Aggregate routes as you can throughout the September to March duration.
Every route set during the Aggregate period will be included in the competition and will be given a number, displayed next to the starting holds. A route can be attempted as many times as you like but must be climbed “clean” (no resting or using aid) from the starting holds to successfully clipping the belay from the last hold (grabbing the top of the wall is ‘out’) to qualify as a successful ascent.
If you successfully climb a route, place a tick on your score card next to the relevant number, savour in your glory for a moment, then go and get pumped on another climb. Each route is worth 2 points for a first try ascent (onsight/flash – tick the O/S column) and 1 point if multiple attempts are required (a redpoint ascent – tick the RP column),
We aim to add new routes every week so you should have something new to try every session. Just remember that the aggregate works numerically with the highest Aggregate route numbers representing the newest routes. Be tactical and try to tick the lowest numbers first before they are removed to make way for newer routes.
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.
