La Sportiva Winter Bouldering League

Winter Bouldering League Reading

As the nights grow darker and the weather declines, the La Sportiva Winter Bouldering League returns to keep your psyche levels high and your climbing technique tip-top!

With a social focus, this is a competition aimed to bring climbers of all ages and abilities together, to climb the great problems, improve their skill levels over the season and most of all, have fun!

This year, there is a change to the categories, with juniors age 7-11 and 12-16. The Veterans category has gone, replaced by two adult open categories, from V0 to V4 and V4 to V8+. It is up to each competitor which group to enter themselves for, and can change between categories until their scorecard is submitted for the penultimate round. The centre can put competitors in a different category if they feel it is more appropriate, and must agree the category you choose

The League ends with a grand final event, with La Sportiva athletes in attendance to give advice, hang out with everyone and, all importantly, to award the prizes! The final problems are all worth double-points, giving you a last chance to really boost your overall score.

It’s not all about the final score though, there will be random spot prizes throughout the winter, maybe for being the most helpful to other competitors, the craziest beta on a problem, most stylish ascent, the possibilities are endless!

Scorecards cost £1 per round and are available from reception when you arrive. Each round starts at 6pm, see you there!
