The Irish Bouldering League is ready to roll for the 2015/2015 season!
The IBL is a series of bouldering competitions suitable for climbers of almost all abilities, from relative novices to seasoned and experienced climbers. The IBL provides an excellent opportunity to meet and compete with other climbers in fun and friendly atmosphere. The IBL also provides brilliant motivation through the winter season.
Each round of the IBL comprises of approximately 20 boulder problems of varying difficulty, from relatively easy to the not so easy! Competitors score points by getting to the top of the boulder problems. Getting to the top of a problem on your first attempt scores 10 points. Your second attempt gets you 7 points. Your third attempt gets you 4 points. You are allowed unlimited attempts on each problem, getting to the top on any subsequent attempt scores you 2 points. If you don't reach the top but you hold the 'bonus' hold you get one point.
The dates and venues of the IBL are:
Round 1: 11th October - Dublin - Gravity Climbing Centre
Round 2: 6th December - Cork - Awesome Walls Cork
Round 3: 31st January - Belfast - Boulder World Belfast
