let’s get ready to rumble

Join us for Rumble in the Rockies, our first ever regional rope climbing competition! Get ready to compete with other climbers in the community, climb on brand new sets, and have fun—all skill levels are welcome. The comp consists of 4 weeks of red point competition, followed by a finals competition at Movement Baker.

how does it work?

From August 28, 2023 through September 24th, 2023, all of our roped climbing areas will be re-set with one competition route per category each week. Each Rumble in the Rockies route will have a grade and indicator tag, and will be viewable within the Kaya competition. Scores will be calculated by totaling all the point values of the routes completed/attempted by a competitor during the 4-week period in a red-point format. Participants will record their scores in Kaya!

what are the categories?

Competitors will enter in male/non-binary or female/non-binary gender categories and select their skill level. We welcome competitors to choose the skill and gender category they are most comfortable with. As a general rule, your skill category should be determined by the hardest grade you regularly redpoint in the gym.

At the end of the competition and once all scores have been tabulated, the setting team will check for any outliers in each skill category and will bump anyone who should have been in a different category. Our 4 skill categories are:

  1. Novice: 5.7 – 5.10- (top rope only)
  2. Intermediate: 5.10+ – 5.11+ (top rope only)
  3. Advanced: 5.11+ – 5.12+ (lead only)
  4. Open: 5.13- – 5.13+ (lead only)

you mentioned a finals competition

The top 2 competitors from each gym in each category will be invited to compete in our regional Finals at Movement Baker on October 7th. All participants are invited to come cheer on the competitors!
