RULES

  1. Videos must be uploaded to the KAYA app in order to confirm your send. We will have a panel of volunteers review all video uploads to verify the problem is completed as identified in the guidebook and marked on the label.
  2. All problems are marked on the rock with a label indicating the problem’s map location, name, description, and point value. They are also listed in the KAYA app.  If you notice a label is missing, please send us a message at INFO@SECLIMBERS.ORG
  3. All problems top out unless otherwise noted. 
  4. Some problems have boundaries – please be aware and do not cross!
  5. Be aware of specific instructions to start a problem – listed on the label or in the guidebook. 
  6. In case of a tie, we  will tally up your next two highest point problems and continue until we have a clear winner. If you have identical scorecards, we will revert back to the original point system for The Sickness to determine a winner.
  7. You must top out all problems. You can not do the crux more and jump off. Dab’s (touching a foot) and jump/run starts do not count unless the problem specifically calls for a jump start.
  8. DO NOT BOULDER WITHOUT A SPOTTER. If you do not have a spot pad or group, find one!
  9. FOLLOW CDC GUIDELINES AT ALL TIMES. Maintain a safe distance from other climbers at all times – if someone is working a problem or boulder, find a different spot to climb until they are done. Wear a mask while spotting or in close proximity with others that do not live in your household.
  10. SANDBAGGING. If you climb more than two climbs above your category, you will be bumped to the next category up. If you do not complete climbs within your category, you will be bumped to the category below.
