Planet Granite’s Bouldering League starts up in just a few weeks! Bouldering League is a friendly event designed to get Portland’s boulderers together to have fun and build camaraderie in a causally competitive environment. Draft your friends to build your dream team.

Here are the requirements for a team:

-Teams must have at least 3 players, at most 6.

-Teams must be co-ed.

-Teams need to have one player represent at least TWO skill categories, (TEAMS DO NOT NEED TO HAVE A PLAYER IN EACH SKILL CATEGORY!)

-Each team must have a team Captain. The team Captain will be the contact person for each team. So, Team Captains, be prepared for “A lot” of “Responsibility”.

-Teams must have a team name, and that team name must be appropriate. But have fun with it!

Skill Categories:

Novice: V0-V2

Intermediate: V3-V5

Advanced: V6+

Team Sign-Ups:
You can sign up at the Front Desk at any time. Payment for the entire team must be accepted upon signing up. Cost is $25 per player, the entire team does not need to be present to sign up. [Hint: Team Captain ;)] Phone numbers and skill levels will be collected for each player upon registration.

Teams must Pre-Register by FRIDAY, APRIL 10th!


Then you’re what we call a Solo Flyer, or maybe a Free Agent? Either way, you need a team to join, or maybe your team needs an additional player! Solo Flyers can leave their contact information at the Front Desk or on the Timeline of our Facebook Page to get in touch with other teams in need. Find your Wolf Pack!

Did we mention there will be PIZZA?

On competition nights, pizza will be served in order to fuel your sending. Wet Wipes will be provided for maximum grease removal prior to sending.

Scoring and Winners

Every other Thursday teams will compete head to head for maximum points. The Team with the most points at the end of the night, wins. The Team with the most overall points at the end of the series, is the overall winner.

In addition to Bragging Rights,  winners will receive a sweet t-shirt declaring them the League Champions!

For more details check out the website with all the information you’ll need.
