Bouldering Competition Formats

by Tom Markiewicz on February 25, 2009

Sean McColl examines the various bouldering competition formats and discusses how he prefers the zone format scoring system.

Another reason why I like the zone is because it rewards smarter climbers rathan than always the strongest. I??ve seen very strong competitors make mistakes during qualifyers and semis and as a result, they did not make finals. To me, thats the life of a competition.

In my recent post about ABS Nationals, I discussed the zone scoring system and how I found it somewhat unusual especially on the problem I was judging. Sean’s post really goes into a lot of detail on the zone scoring system and it makes a little more sense to me now.
