Mountaineering Scotland organises and coordinates the National Bouldering League (SNBL) in partnership with member climbing walls of the Scottish Climbing Wall Network (SCWN).
The whole point of the league is that itís not all about who is the best on the day, but also who is willing to travel attend the different rounds throughout Scotland at an amazing selection of venues.
This year's SNBL is sponsored by Psychi, a UK-based fitness and climbing brand which offers a climbing essentials range with all the basic climbing and bouldering essentials. All its products are designed in the UK and tested by experienced athletes whose core values of quality, performance and design are at the heart of their business.
Each wall has its own programme of competitions over the winter period. Below we list the dates selected to be scoring rounds for the SNBL:
Check individual walls for their full list of competition dates or see our Local competitions page.
The league uses one of the rounds of each host walls' scheduled winter bouldering competitions to count for scoring. There are six rounds at walls across Scotland, one each month from October to March. Scoring after each round will be ranked. Competitors can attend all six rounds if they wish, with their best four scores used to decide their final placings and the Scottish Bouldering Champions.
To enter for the league simply attend the SNBL round at the host walls and indicate when you take part that you wish to be entered into the SNBL. There is no additional cost. The final scores and prizes will be given out at Round 6 at Eden Rock, Edinburgh.
Because each climbing wall offers a different kind of competition and different a scoring system, we rank the individual round winners in the different categories and the ranked scores are totaled to find the winner after all rounds have been completed. The best 4 results out of 6 are used for the final rankings. Ranked scores will be posted here and notified through the Mountaineering Scotland Facebook page after each round, so competitors can keep track of their potential placings.
