How does the scoring work?
Scoring is normalized by your handicap. Your handicap is calculated based on your Average Flash Grade. DO NOT try sandbagging (low-balling your handicap), we will catch you and bump your handicap up to what we think it should be.
  • 1 Point = Your Average Flash Grade
  • 2 Points = completing 1 grade above your average
  • 3 Points = completing 2 grades above your average
  • +1 Point = Flash bonus (complete a route on the first try without falling)
How do I determine my handicap?
You handicap is based on your Average Flash Grade. Do not confuse this with your hardest climb ever achieved. Choose the grade you flash on the majority of time.
  • Example: Bubba has climbed a V6 once in his life. He projects V5 but it takes him several sessions. He is comfortable climbing climbing V4 and consistently flashes them within the same day of first trying it. Bubba’s Average Flash Grade is V4
Will there be 3 climbing nights in the sixth week?
No. There will be one “combined” finals night on Wednesday, December 6th.
