2023-2024 Season – Boulder Qualification Format

For the 2023-2024 Season, CEC will continue using the IFSC Flash Format for Boulder Qualification. Here is what you need to know about this format.

 

Gym Set Up

  • There will be 6 problems per gender/category in the Competition Area for the Qualifier Round
    • Senior Nationals will have 12 problems on the walls
    • Youth Nationals may have anywhere between 16 and 24 problems
  • Problems will be identified M1 to M6, as well as F1 to F6, and clearly labeled by category (SM, SF, JM, JF, YAM, YAF, YBM, YBF, YCM, YCF)
  • 2 courses of 3 problems each (courses A and B) for each gender and category
  • Through the Qualification Round, each athlete will need to complete all 6 problems of their gender and category
  • Beta videos for each problem will be available on the CEC YouTube Channel by the Technical Meeting
  • There is no Isolation area
  • The gym will be opened 1h30 before the start of the Qualification round for Athletes Warm Up and Boulder Observation

Start List

  • Each Category will be divided into two Groups – Group A and Group B
    • Group A will do problems 1, 2, 3 – Rest – 4, 5, 6
    • Group B will do problems 4, 5, 6 – Rest – 1, 2, 3
  • The Judges of Problems #1 and Problems #4 will call athletes by their name and/or bib numbers.
  • The first athlete will then get their 4min ON, before moving to the rest chair for 4 min OFF
  • Participants will have a longer break after their first 3 problems, before moving on to their next 3 problems
  • If you miss you turn on either problem 1 or 4, you will be unable to climb that set of problems. You may still climb and collect a score on the other set of three problems. So, pay attention to the flow!
    • Be sure you locate your name on BOTH Start List – List A and List B.
  • Watch this video to better understand the flow of the Qualification Round
