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)

Setting queries should be directed to the front desk team or facility manager.

Boulder league details

How does it all work?

When:
– Week 1: Sept 17 – 23
– Week 2: Sept 24 – 30
– Week 3: October 1 – 7
– Week 4: October 8 – 14
– Week 5: October 15 – 21
– Hive Finals @ Vancouver: November 1 6PM

PBL Championships: Early November (exact date TBD)

Registration:
Teams need to register by September 17 to get the full league time. Your team name needs to be family friendly, as it goes on the public scoreboard. There will be registration by location and teams must register at one location or the other.
$16.50 per person to enter covers the entire League except Pacific Boulder League Championships which will have a small additional team fee.

Scoring and Teams:
20 problems weekly with new problems tagged Tuesday mornings at open. There will be 6 new boulders and 14 of the most recently set problems included in the week’s ‘new’ League problems.
Teams must be co-ed*, & must climb together once a week. Teams will be allowed ONE ‘free pass’ to full team attendance which may be used any week during the league but only one week. Once this free pass is used up, teams will be scored on their collective session total, divided by full number of members in the team. (See Weekly Team Score below)
Team will be given a scorecard for that week’s climb, to be picked up at the front desk with the full team in attendance (with some flexibility for a member being 15-20 min behind, on occasion).

Problems will be numbered with a league number tag. Only those problems will be included in the League scoring. The problems will be cumulatively numbered; week 1 will be 1-20, week 2 will be 21-40, and so on.
Each person can only count a problem once towards their score but multiple team members can count the same problem. Top 5 problems for each person count toward that week’s score which is divided by the total number of team members.

Weekly Team Score:
Problems are given their equivalent points to their hex number (0 hex = .5, rest are # hex = point). Points are awarded for completed problems only. Problems are completed when the climber holds the top with 2 hands (controlled) or tops out the problem. Team members will judge each other as to a valid ascent. Gym staff may spot check (at any time) that teams are judging properly and fairly.
The top 5 hardest boulders completed by each team member, divided by the number of team members in attendance.
Team Ranking will be calculated as the sum of team’s weekly scores. League Standings will be kept updated on a weekly basis at the gym.

Prizes for the Hive Finals will be awarded to top 3 teams at the end of the night (as soon as scores are totalled, which usually takes about 20-30 minutes).

Hive Finals
All Hive Boulder League teams are invited to participate in the Hive Boulder League Finals at Hive Vancouver on November 1! Doors will open at 5:30 and climbing begins at 6pm; teams will have until 9:30pm to get those top 5 problems for each team member signed off on their scorecard. These points count for double!!
Prizes will be awarded at the end of the night as soon as all scores are totalled.

Top 3-5 teams from each location will be invited to attend the Pacific Boulder League Championships at Project Cloverdale on Nov 16.

*co-ed meaning respectfully gender diverse; can be male, female, non-conforming, gender-fluid, or questioning; anyone in our community is welcome! We are certainly not trying to out anyone and apologize for any discomfort for anyone who is still processing their gender identity and is not yet ready to share this information; we are open to suggestions on how best to be inclusive in future and appreciate your feedback, which can be submitted anonymously through a letter to management dropped at the desk, or an email directly to the Events Manager, Kate: kate@hiveclimbing.com Please note, this is a genuine effort to be inclusive — anyone found to be mocking non-binary gender expression will be asked to stop, followed by a request to leave the League if necessary.

Mentor Nights!

Starting January 28 2019, join us as a mentor or a mentee on the last Monday of each month

Ask anyone who’s been climbing for more than 5 years how they started; you’ll soon hear about the friend who got them into it and taught them the ropes (or lack thereof) from the start.

The aim of Mentor nights is to connect less experienced or newer climbers to the wealth of experienced and amazing individuals at the gym, and to encourage a small-gym community feeling, despite the constant growth of our climbing community.

Talk to the front desk at your home gym to get involved today.
