Each year during the summer months, Durham Climbing Centre host our Summer Bouldering Ladder Competition.
We know it’s hard to get motivated in the summer with the heat and all so what better way of motivating yourself than progressing up the ladder?! Of course we will be employing some of the best local and international route setters to ensure the problems will be top notch!
You can come to each round as many times as you like, so perseverance really is the key to success. Since the climbs will range from very easy to super hard everyone can have a go – beginner to climbing pro. The Summer Ladder is a great introduction to competition climbing as having longer rounds means you can keep trying problems as often as you like. You’ll hopefully see some pretty quick progression over the summer since the comp will really help you to focus your sessions and practice a whole range of climbing styles.
A new set of problems is revealed at the start of each round which competitors may attempt as many times as they like in as many visits before the round ends and a new one begins.
The online scoreboard is updated almost daily, so you can see your rank as you move up (or down!) the ladder! Get it?!
