Competition Format:

Youth D/E

  • Judged scramble comp (attempt problems in any order athlete wants) 
  • 8 problems to choose from, maximum 6 attempts per problem 
  • No video system (appeals only for scoring entry errors) 
  • 90 minutes climbing time 
  • E results not posted 

Youth C

  • Judged IFSC Isolation style comp 
  • Qualifier round for each category is 5 problems, 5 on / 5 off 
  • Final round for each category is 4 problems, 5 on / 5 off (IFSC semi-final format) 
  • Quota to finals is 6 in each category 

An isolation zone (ISO) will be in effect for the Youth C competition: 

  • All competitors must be checked into ISO by 8:30am.
  • Once competitors enter ISO, they will not be permitted to leave until it is their turn to compete. Only competitors, coaches with OCF privileges and officials are allowed into ISO; parents are not permitted. 
  • Competitors and coaches are not allowed to communicate with anyone outside of ISO. Electronic communication devices (including Bluetooth devices) are not permitted in ISO. 
  • Once in the competition area, competitors may not communicate with anyone other than officials until they are finished competing.
  • Parents, coaches and other supporters are encouraged to cheer for their climbers, but they cannot call out information or advice (referred to as “beta”) to a climber while they are competing (including during rest periods between their attempts). Examples of forbidden beta would include “Use the hold by your left foot,” “Breathe,” “Rest now,” or “Use the hold around the corner”.
