Climbers congregate at On the Rocks Climbing Gym for bouldering competition

Sport of climbing is gaining popularity

Climbers from across Vancouver Island took part in On The Rocks Climbing Gym’s “Physical Geometry” bouldering competition on Nov. 23.

Bouldering is climbing without ropes or harnesses and routes are designed to challenge the climber in many different ways.

Competitors were given three hours to complete their top five ‘routes’. Points were awarded for each climb, numbered 1 – 35 with 1 being 10 points and 35 equalling 350.

There were three categories – beginner, intermediate and experienced and a huge entry of both adults and youth took part.

Indoor climbing is gaining popularity as people are seeking an alternative way to get in shape and have fun.
