Halloween Pulldown

OCT 29th 2022

***NOT a USAC competition. No extra fees or day pass!***

 Halloween Pulldown is a two-part event; an on-sight lead competition and a redpoint top rope competition.

On-sight Lead:

We begin in the morning with our on-sight lead competition. Competitors in the Advanced (5.9 – 5.11) or Open (5.11+) divisions will be kept in isolation before climbing their preliminary routes. Each climber will have 5 min to climb each of their 3 preliminary routes. Points are based on the highest controlled hold and the last draw clipped before falling. The top six competitors will qualify for the finals that evening. Finals will be a single route per division with progressive difficulty.

Redpoint Top Rope:

In the afternoon we will hold our top rope competition. This is an easygoing and family-friendly event! Costumes are highly encouraged and we will have a costume contest with adult and kids divisions. We will be using the traditional format, so try a route as many times as you like and gain its points if you clean it. Competitors will belay for each other and scorecards will require the initials of your belayer. Attempts will be counted and used for tiebreakers. The recreational division is 5.6 to 5.8 and the intermediate division is 5.9 to 5.11.
