How do I register?

  1. Assemble a team of four. Climbers of all experience levels can compete! Scoring is relative to your current ability, so teams can include any combination of beginner through advanced climbers.

  2. Register in KAYA. During registration, select an existing team name or create a new one. If you don’t have a full team of four, sign up as a free agent. We will assign you to a team. The last day to register is June 6th.

Not a member? We’re waiving the enrollment fee for competitors who join during the series. Show us your registration in KAYA. Non-members will have to purchase a day pass for each visit.

What is the format?

  • Teams of four will climb in a redpoint format at the Power Plant and/or Steel Shop to achieve their highest five scores each week. Teams should climb together to have the most success in the series. Rack up the most possible points by climbing at both gyms.

  • New boulders will go up every Monday at the Steel Shop and Tuesday at the Power Plant. Each week’s boulders will be eligible for scoring from Tuesday through the following Monday.

  • Use KAYA to tally your scores. You must upload a video of each climb that shows an established start and finish. All videos are subject to review by request.

  • The top teams will be invited to an onsight finals at the Steel Shop on July 23rd.

How is it scored?

  • Points are assigned by the max grade you reported during registration. You earn 100 points for sending your max grade, +10 points for each grade above, -20 points for each grade below.

  • Your team’s top five weekly scores will count toward your cumulative score.

  • Keep track of your team on a live leaderboard in KAYA throughout the series.

Did you make it to finals?

  • The finals will be in an onsight format. You will not see other people climb a problem before attempting it yourself. Prior to the event, you will enter an isolation area to ensure that you cannot watch other climbers.

  • Your team will have a four minute preview period to look at all the boulders. Each team member will climb one problem during the finals. Work with your team to decide who is best suited for each climb.

  • Your score will be based on the highest hold reached. Your team’s score will be determined by the sum of all team members’ scores on the final boulders. Ties will be broken by the total number of attempts for each team.

  • Each competitor on the winning team will take home a $50 Mission Taco gift card, KAYA slider pad, and trophy.
