Rock Climbing (Indoor)
Mob: 0403 974 286
The format will be an ‘Hour of Power’. This is a fun social competition with the aim of climbing cleanly as many climbs as possible in 60 minutes. The climbs will be completed on auto belays. Points for each climb will be awarded based on difficulty. A grade
10 is worth 10 points and a 21 worth 21 points, but the grades are not revealed until the end of the competition. Competitors attempt to climb as many climbs as possible within one hour. Points can only be awarded for each climb once, but competitors can have as many attempts as they need to get to the top. After each attempt, the competitor must go to the back of the queue before the next attempt. At the end of the 60 minutes, competitors may finish the climb started so long as all limbs are off the ground. In the event of a tie, a speed climb decider will be used.

Climbing is a test of fitness combining power and endurance with problem solving skills to find the fastest most efficient path to the top of the wall, usually following a dedicated designed pathway.
