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.

The league will use one of the rounds of each host wallsí scheduled winter bouldering competitions. There will be six rounds, one each month from October to March. Scoring after each round will be ranked. The best four scores by a competitor will be used to decide the final placings and the Scottish Bouldering Champions. This yearís events are listed below.
