Scores are posted at the end of each week in the facility and on the Sender One Bouldering League Facebook page.
- Scoring is normalized by your handicap (which is decided by you), which may be adjusted during the competition.
- Example: A climber with a V2 handicap climbing a V2 graded problem will receive the same amount of points as a V10 climber climbing a V10 graded problem.
- Handicap Adjustment: As you progress and improve throughout the competition, your handicap may be increased accordingly.
- Example: A climber with a V2 handicap sends a V4 problem, or multiple V3s, their handicap will likely be bumped up to V3.
- Flashing will earn you extra points, and climbing at your handicap will also give you a higher score.
