Our board is set at 25˚. Please keep in mind that MoonBoard grades start at a higher level (V2 instead of V0), and are often considered “sandbagged” (harder) than standard gym setting and other systems like the Tension Board.
Open A Men (V4 and up)
Open A Women (V4 and up)
Open B, any gender (V2-V3, novices, first time on MoonBoard, etc.)
Entrants in the Open B category will begin around 6:30pm at V2. From V2-V3 everyone has 3 lives total. Once you fail 3 times you are out. You must climb a problem at each grade to move on to the next grade. The problem at each grade will be set by the organiser and will be the same for everyone.
Open As will join any remaining Open B climbers around 7-7:15pm at V4 level. Everyone gets 3 more lives for V4-V5. Again, you must climb a problem at each grade to move onto the next grade. From V6 and up, all remaining participants get 4 minutes to send each problem.
You could win a prize just for showing up! Our friends at Mont Adventure Equipment are supplying lucky door prizes, and all competition entrants will go into a draw for two CAC shirts.
The Open B category winner will receive a 10-visit pass to Canberra Indoor Rock Climbing, which can be used at both of our gym locations. They will also receive a $50 voucher and a hoodie from Mont Adventure Equipment and a bottle of liquid chalk from Can Climb.
Both of the Open A category winners will receive a $100 voucher and hoodie from Mont and a bottle of liquid chalk from Can Climb.
Spectators are welcome. Please keep in mind that the upstairs section of the Hume gym that the MoonBoard is in is small and we will not be able to provide much in the way of proper seating. You will be able to sit and make yourselves comfortable on the bouldering mats.
