With the number of climbing walls ever-increasing, bouldering competitions are cropping up all over the place, especially in the winter. There is usually a full range of categories: Men, Women, Vets, Junior boys & Junior girls.
Competitions usually come in two forms.
Aggregate comps held over a period of between 1- 4 months with a broad range of problems, usually harder than day competitions. You can work every time you go to the wall. They can have up to 150 problems to go at.
Day comps which last for one to two hours with a maximum of 30 problems. Usually the problems are marked on the number of attempts it takes you to complete them. Very popular.
