Route Master – Round 4


Boulders’ climbing competition totally focused on routes.

The competition includes top roping for the lower grades, building up to more difficult routes that must be led. There should be routes for everyone from ‘have a go’, all the way up to ‘nails’!
There will be 4 rounds over the summer with a Grand Final at the end. The routes will be open for 9 days and each round will open the weekend after The Crucible bouldering competition round finishes. The competition will be self-scored and each month there will be 6 routes in total numbered 1 to 6. The route grade will gradually get more difficult as the route number ascends and will be approximately;
  • 1: 3 to 4
  • 2: 5 to 5+
  • 3: 6a – 6a+
  • 4: 6b to 6b+
  • 5: 6c – 7a
  • 6: 7b or higher
Routes 1 to 4 will be top rope and routes 5 and 6 will be lead climbs.
It’s FREE to take compete! You just need to pay your entry to the climbing centre and there’s no additional charge for taking part.

  • Round 4: 24th August – 1st September
