Bouldering League
You’ve heard the ruckus in the bouldering area every few weeks. You may have climbed some of the Bouldering League problems and thought to yourself, “What is this madness?!” Teams like Big Crimpin’, Hand Foot Match, and Custard’s last Crimp battled it out over the last few weeks to compete for some seriously awesome bragging rights and we’re about to start session two. So, you’ve got to ask yourself:

Are you ready to compete with your friends, against your friends for bragging rights throughout the gym?!

Planet Granite Portland’s Bouldering League starts up in just a few weeks! Bouldering League is a friendly event designed to get Portland’s boulderers together to have fun and build camaraderie in a causally competitive environment. Draft your friends to build your dream team.

Here are the requirements for a team:

-Teams must have at least 3 players, at most 6.

-Teams must be co-ed.

-Teams need to have one player represent at least TWO skill categories, (TEAMS DO NOT NEED TO HAVE A PLAYER IN EACH SKILL CATEGORY!)

-Each team must have a team Captain. The team Captain will be the contact person for each team. So, Team Captains, be prepared for “A lot” of “Responsibility”.

-Teams must have a team name, and that team name must be appropriate. But have fun with it! We’re looking at you  Dr.Cohen’s-100%-natural- good-time-family-climb-solution
