Results are in, Crucible Grand Final this Saturday!

The dust has settled and the walls are looking rather blank. It can only mean one thing; the final scores from this Summer’s rounds are published here; The Crucible bouldering competition scores

Check out your category, if your name is in yellow you’ve qualified for the Elite contest on the 7th – THIS SATURDAY!

We’ll open this Saturday at 10am and you’ll be able to jump straight on the blocs for a two hour window, starting when you want.  Hand your score card back before your window times out or you’ll get caught out with penalty points.  Those that like a lie in don’t get caught out, whatever time you start all cards from the morning’s bouldering need to be back in by 1.30pm.  The top climbers from the morning’s competition will then go on to compete in a super-final starting at 2pm.  If you don’t qualify, don’t rush home. Hang around to watch Cardiff’s strongest battle it out on the nastiest things we can conjure up.

To make things special we’ve totally stripped the bouldering area, chucked some brand new volumes on the wall and even brought in a Mammut sponsored athlete, Cailean Harker, to help set the problems. You can read a bit more about what we’re doing to the bouldering area over the next two days in our recent latest news article.

Here’s a summary of the times for the day:

10am – 1:30pm: Everyone gets 2 hours to attempt 20 qualifying problems.

2pm – Finish: Super finals. The top 3 from the elite category compete in 3 problems for the top prizes.

Now the big news about the prizes; there will be two categories. Those who have finished with the top scores for the Summer Crucible rounds have qualified for the ‘Elite’ category and everyone else is able to enter the ‘Open’ category. The prizes are listed below. Don’t forget there’s no extra cost to enter into the Grand Final – just pay your normal entrance fee to the centre. Boulders will be open as normal on the 7th, so you’re most welcome to come down and watch the competition.
