FAQ:

Q: Do I need to be in a team? Do teams count towards points?
A: Nope! Scores are calculated for individuals only.

Q: Can I win a cash/series prize as a Recreational or Youth competitor?
A: No, the big money is only for those Series Experienced category climbers, but we’ve got some really awesome prizes (memberships and industry swag) for Recreational and Youth climbers at each of the 3 events.

Q: What if I can’t get there for the adult’s technical meeting (5:30) or the round start at 6pm?
A: No worries; staff can give you the run down as you check-in, but you’ll want as much time as possible to send as many climbs as you can by 9pm.

Q: How is the competition scored?
A: Each problem is worth 1000 points divided by the number of sends. Harder problems get sent less frequently and are worth more points. Individual comp scores will be tallied as quickly as possible at the end of the evening; if you’re done a little early you can hand your score card in, no need to wait until 9pm

HEIGHTS NIGHTS

Join us for an exhilarating evening of community bonding and vertical adventures at “Heights Nights” hosted by Hive Heights, your premier rope climbing gym. In collaboration with Balancing Acts and Arc’teryx, we’re thrilled to introduce an event aimed at shattering barriers and fostering connections within our climbing community.

Heights Nights reimagines our beloved “Just Climb” nights with an infusion of energy, excitement, and camaraderie. Step into our vibrant climbing space on June 3rd from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM, where you’ll find yourself surrounded by fellow climbers eager to push their limits and conquer new heights.

With the support of Balancing Acts and Arc’teryx, we’re bringing together a dynamic mix of climbers from diverse backgrounds, united by their passion for scaling walls. Prepare to experience the thrill of climbing like never before as you join forces with this vibrant community.

 

But that’s not all – we’re raising the bar even higher with complimentary beverages to fuel your ascent. 

As you tackle our routes, let the beats of our live DJ, B-Drive, propel you forward. With an electrifying soundtrack setting the rhythm for your climbs, you’ll find yourself in the zone, fully immersed in the moment.

To ensure you can focus solely on your climbing journey, all visitors will be belayed by Hive staff – guests will not be allowed to belay themselves for this session

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to elevate your climbing experience and forge lasting connections within our tight-knit community. Mark your calendars for Heights Nights at Hive Heights on June 3rd – an event where the sky’s the limit.

 

Balancing Acts

BRING A FRIEND NIGHT at POCO

Consider this more than just a board meeting; it’s a full-blown conference where everyone is invited to enjoy a space where they can feel comfortable just being themselves. Here, climbing isn’t just a sport; it’s our medium for expression and building a vibrant community.

Picture this: Bubble Tea, DJs spinning your favorite tunes, and all your climbing pals gathered in one place. It’s bound to be an epic time you won’t want to miss. Check out the full details in our bio and mark your calendars because this event is one you won’t want to miss!

Sundays in April @ PoCo

Newbie Nights

Do you have a friend who has always wanted to try climbing? Or perhaps a friend who has always put off trying climbing? Sundays in April at Hive PoCo is your opportunity to bring that friend in for free!

All Sunday nights in April, from 6:00pm to close. No booking required. Newbies must be accompanied by someone who has climbed at the Hive. Ratio is 1 to 1 (1 newbie per 1 Hiver).

Spray Wall Meet Up

Come join us for a night of bouldering the second Tuesday of every month at 7:30PM in Hive Heights!

The spray wall can often be an intimidating place for climbers. This meetup aims to make the spray wall a more accessible place by facilitating a community night of climbing, setting and fun with reduced barriers!

No bouldering experience is required, all levels are welcome! Just bring a good attitude, chalk and your climbing shoes! Don’t have your own shoes? Rentals are available via the front desk.

Belay Buddies @ The Heights

Friday nights are Belay Buddy nights! How it works:

  • Book your climbing session as normal.
  • Ask the staff for a Belay Buddies harness tag on arrival.
  • Proceed to respectfully introduce yourself to others wearing the tag! 
  • Keep safety in mind, of course, and ask questions of your potential climbing partner to make sure you’re on the same page about experience and ability.
  • It’s okay to say ‘no thanks’ or ‘not today’ if someone isn’t a good fit.
  • Remember it’s not a dating event, we’re here for climbing partnerships.

 

Some experience required. You must be Belay Certified in order to participate. You must have a partner to take the belay test; testing in advance is strongly recommended.

boulder league 2022

Boulder league is a fun, friendly team-based event created to build camaraderie in the community, and provide a little extra fun by setting more climbs than usual throughout the league climb. It was also created to connect the broader climbing community, with a cross-gym championship for the top teams from all participating gyms in the area (Hive, Project, Coastal historically). You and your teammates (4-5) will compete out of 1 Hive location – so pick your favourite most accessible one, as only that gym’s “League” climbs will count towards your score! You and your team must be registered by October 23rd, 2022 in order to participate, as the League will begin on October 17, 2022 for PoCo and Van, while Surrey and North Shore will start on October 19, 2022. Two teams from each location will be invited to attend the finals at Project in Cloverdale on Nov 18, 2022.

How it works

Rules & Instructions for Registration & Participation

The Rules and Regulations for running The Hive’s Boulder League were developed in conjunction with the Pacific Bouldering League founding gyms – Project, The Hive, and Coastal Climbing. These rules are intended to keep this fun competition fair for all. Rules of the PBL championships may vary slightly, as it is not run on KAYA.

Teams
  • Teams must include 4-5 people who are available to compete each week for the duration of the League.
  • Each member of the team must register and compete at ONE Hive location (Or register your team independently at multiple locations).
  • You may be on more than one team, but make sure you can commit to both for the duration of the League. We suggest climbing on one highly competitive team and one more casual, ‘just for fun team’ since you can’t climb on two teams at the PBL Championships.
  • We encourage teams to be gender-diverse; this is a requirement to compete in the PBL Championships. Please note that teams are to self-regulate this aspect of their team dynamics. (We hope this is not necessary to say, but just in case: please do not expect folks to out themselves for the benefit your team’s qualification, or assume anyone’s gender based on your assumptions of how someone of a particular gender presents themselves to the world.) 
 
Climbing
  • Start dates for the league will be staggered, to align with each gym’s setting schedule. Only climbs with League tags in KAYA count.
  • Each member may only count each climb towards their total score once per interval (7 days from the day a climb is set)
    • multiple team members may count the same climb
  • ONLY the top 5 climbs per interval (week) are counted toward your score
  • You may repeat league climbs each week, but it will not count more than once per interval (e.g. you can log the same 2 hex this interval and the following interval) – this is different from previous leagues. YOU MUST RE-CLIMB IT IN ORDER TO COUNT IT!
  • Climbs do not expire – those tagged ‘League’ in Kaya will be valid for the duration of the League.
 
Scoring
  • Complete a climb start to finish in order to count it
  • You must submit your climbs for each interval during that week’s interval; new scoring interval will begin every 7 days (e.g. the second ‘week’ or interval will begin on the on the 8th day of the league)
  • Top 5 climbs per team member count towards your final score
  • Final Score = (total team points)/(total team members)
    • See “Injuries or missing Teammates” below; No substitutions of team members for Finals (this doesn’t mean reverting to the OG teammate though; previously made substitutions stand)
  • The honour system is used for scoring – teams can self-police and cross-team police; any concerns should be brought to league manager or Events Manager
    • Any unsportsperson-like behaviour observed by league members or staff may result in disqualification
  • Auto bumping is enabled – if you send multiple problems above your listed grade, you will get bumped into a different VMax
    • Your VMax should be the grade you regularly send in 3-5 attempts
    • V0 = Hard 1/Easy 2 Hex
    • V1 = Solid 2 hex
    • V2 = Hard 2/ Easy 3 Hex
    • V3 = Solid 3 Hex
    • Etc.
 
Injuries or Missing Teammates

A team’s average will be calculated by (a maximum of) one less member (5 become /4, 4 become /3) due to:

  • Injuries: Must have proof of actual injury (doctor or physio note ideally)
  • Illness/ major unforeseen event (staff will make a judgement call)

These may not be stacked. So a team short 2 members due to one or both of these issues may not divide by 2 less. (Sorry)
