Questions

A circuit is simply a “collection of boulder problems”.

You can organise a circuit to contain problems of all the same colour or grade. You can organise a circuit to contain problems in a particular area of a wall e.g top-out boulder. Or, you can organise a circuit to have problems of an event like a competition. It’s up to you.

A Line is a collection of quickdraws coming down the wall. Typically, multiple routes will be set on a single line. Usually the lines will not move very often and the number of quickdraws will stay the same.

After setting a route or a boulder problem, it is still possible to edit it afterwards. In editing you can change ANY property including the associated Gripto-Tag (if it got damaged or lost). 

To enter Edit mode, you must be an Admin or Staff account.

We designed the “Scoring System” to be a fun way of comparing against others and tracking your own progression. The system is based on assigning each graded climb some points; your “Score” is the sum of these points. If you Flash the climb you get the full quantity, subsequent tries get a lower number.

Once you tick a route, we think you should be pushing to try other new climbs and so ticking the same route over and over doesn’t score you any points.

Bouldering and Sport scores are kept separately.

Points system is thus as follows:

Boulder Grade (Font)Sport Grade (French)Points
4a50
4b50
4c50
5a100
45b200
4+250
55c300
5+350

6a+6a+450
6b6b500

Modifiers

For Flash you get bonus of +100 on top of the grade score

For each failed attempt you drop -10 from grade score

Top roping drops points by -50 from grade score

Second ticks don’t score anything

Leader boards are a fun way to compare against other climbers in the gym. Your ordering is done on the contributing score from the TOP 10 climbs you tick (so make sure to mark off all your attempts – not just the hard stuff). For a reminder of how Score points work, see above.

Leader boards are also per-gym. This means you don’t need to worry about grading/setting differences between gyms. If one gym happens to be “mean” or “generous” in grading, it is the same for everyone!

Finally, if your not into competing, you can always opt-out of the leader board by setting your profile to private.
