How does the bouldering league work?
The first 3 rounds of The Siege start with a launch evening and then you have 26 days to top as many problems as you can. Each competitor has unlimited attempts to climb the problems – all that matters is the top. Each of the rounds begin with an opening night that has a live DJ, raffle prizes up for grabs for all climbers on the night and 30 brand new, fresh, problems to get on.
The 4th round (Finals) is different in that it will be a one day event held in the daytime before the Grand Final. It will have some surprise problems in store for climbers as climbing should always be fun.
The Grand Final takes place in the evening after the end of round 4. Our Grand Final competitors will be selected after the first 3 rounds in the league. The selection will be based on the top 2 positions placed by each competitor in rounds 1,2 and 3. Only the Senior Men’s and Women’s categories compete in the Grand FInals. The chosen 6 competitors from each category will be contacted by Stronghold prior to the finals. All Grand Final competitors do not compete in round 4.
All seniors not selected for the Grand Finals; we will be running ‘Senior best of the rest’ Men’s and Women’s categories. To compete for this category, you will need to climb in at least 2 of the 3 preliminary rounds and climb in round 4 (Finals).
