Touchstone Climbing will once again be hosting the Touchstone Bouldering Series this fall. During the first 5 seasons of the TBS, these comps have grown to some of the largest bouldering comps in the country. This season we will kick off the series with a special Saturday comp at Berkeley Ironworks to celebrate the gyms 10th anniversary, as well as Touchstone's 15th. The other 4 comps will be held on Friday evenings starting at 5pm. The finale will take place at Mission Cliffs, and we are hoping it will be held in our brand new bouldering area. Stay tuned.
All events will include a red point Bouldering comp as well as refreshments, games and prizes. Points will be award for each comp with overall winners being announced after the final comp.
These comps are FREE for Touchstone Members
Points will be standardized for each comp. This means that a v3 problem at Mission Cliffs will be worth close to the same as a V3 problem at Pipeworks. The point system will be as follows:
These will be self scoring comps. Your score will be the total of your five best completed problems.
There will be three levels of competitions for both men and women.
Beginner V0-V2 V0-V1
Intermediate V3-V5 V2-V4
Advanced V6+ V5+
Your top 3 scores out of the 5 possible scores will be used to calculate your final standings. You can see the current standings online.
*If you average above your current level, there is a possibility that you may be bumped to the next level for final standings.
In the spirit of fun for all, prizes available will be raffled randomly at each event, so just try, and you could win something.
