Join us for our 1st Annual Southwest Boulderfest!

The biggest community event of the season at ABP.

This year’s event will include a redpoint-style competition throughout the day (see details below), a spectator-friendly onsight finals and a raucous party in the evening.

Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 competitors in each category, including a $7,000 cash purse for the Open category. We will close off our parking lot with vendor booths, food trucks, all-day DJs, and free beverages for all spectators as we kick off the finals event.

Bumping & Category Selection (Adult Competition):
Please carefully read the bumping and category selection rules below and make sure to choose the appropriate category. Please do not choose a category below your skill level. Competitors who climb significantly beyond the skill level of their chosen category may be bumped to a higher category. Competitors will have the option to self-bump to the correct category during their round. This will allow you to remain in the competition. Otherwise, if a competitor is bumped, they will not be eligible to receive a score in the competition.
