Onsight Series Final
The top competitors of the comp from both mens and womens categories are invited to compete in the Final at the end of the comp. The Final consists of three problems with five minutes for each competitor to attempt the climb.
- Category is chosen based on top two climbs completed.
- Participants can climb ONE climb outside of their category. However, if they complete 2 or more problems in a higher category, they will be bumped to a higher category. Competitors will be ranked within their category based on their Total Score, which is the sum of their top five climbs.
- Total score ties within a category will be broken by the competitors’ highest scoring problem.
- If a competitor does not finish 5 climbs, their Total Score will be the sum of whatever they climbed. They will still be categorized based on their two highest scoring problems.
- Ascents must be witnessed by two people and initialed by each.
- Five attempts per problem. X off points for every try, circle the final score when problem is sent.
- Must complete three problems to turn in a score card for a shirt and raffle ticket.
