Top 8 women and top 8 men of each category go to finals. Athlete registration costs $45 and gives you access to the site all weekend long.

Scoring and Rules
Q: How does scoring work?
A: Each problem has 3 possible point values on your scorecard. If you top the problem on the first attempt, you get the highest possible point value for that problem. A second attempt top yields fewer points, and any top on the third or more attempt yields the fewest. A completed scorecard is your best six problems.
Q: Where/when are results posted?
A: Full results will usually be posted at the Allez Up tent within an hour of climbing completion. The finals line up will usually be posted on Facebook shortly after that.
