After it’s success last year, we are pleased to confirm the date for F-BO15 – Saturday 7th February 2015.
The Foundry Bouldering Open will be a BIG one day comp with a £2,000 CASH prize list, plus other super spot prizes from our sponsors.
The Chief Setters will be Rob Napier and Percy Bishton with Mr Graeme Alderson as Chief Judge. (For those old enough to remember, Graeme was the man behind FIBO at The Foundry back in the 90′s).
A ‘score yourself’ qualification round with 25 problems starting from Font4+. Set so there will be plenty of problems in the font 5 to 6 range (equivalent to level 1 and 2 problems in our circuits) so everyone can have a good climb in the qualification round.
The top 6 men and women go through to an onsight final of 4 problems each, which will be set on The Wave and Bleaustone walls.
The comp has Senior (18 or over on 7/2/15) and Junior age categories (age 10-17 years on 7/2/15) as well as a Team event. It is open to any climber who is at least 10 years old on the 7th Feb 2015, however please note there will be no special junior problems set.
Team entry – In the qualification round any 3 people can make up a team. There is no extra cost to be part of a team, but you do need to be entered as an individual first. Teams must contain at least one female climber and members can be confirmed on the day of the competition. Being in a team means you have a chance of winning more prizes!
Each competitor will receive an F-BO15 competition vest or T-shirt (provided they pre enter).
