Our climbing competitions are designed for all skill levels. Each year we offer a top rope and bouldering competition. The bouldering competition is held in the Fall semester and the top rope competition is held in the Spring semester. All competitors will compete in gender neutral divisions ranging from Beginner to Advanced. 

Spartan Summit

A favorite event of Outdoor Adventures, the Spartan Summit, is a top-rope rock climbing competition open to anyone! A variety of routes ranging from beginner to advanced are set to provide a fun and challenging competition for climbers of all skill levels. The Spartan Summit includes food, prizes, and giveaways. The top five competitors in each category are awarded prizes. There are two heats climbers can choose from at time of registration.

Crush the Crux

Crush the Crux is our annual Bouldering Competition open to UNCG Students and Kaplan Center members. Over 30 new bouldering problems with ratings between V0-V7 are set in preparation for this competition. Competitors can choose any problems they wish to attempt and the top 5 competitors in each competition division will be awarded prizes. 

Spectator policy

Friends and family who would like to watch the competition and are not Kaplan Center members or students will be allowed into the facility to spectate. There is a spectator fee of $2.00 (cash only) per spectator, or a donation of canned items for the UNCG Spartan Open Pantry. Spectators must present a physical, valid government-issued photo ID to enter the Kaplan Center.

Spectators are not permitted in the climbing area and must spectate from outside of Outdoor Adventures, either in the lower lobby or overlooking the climbing wall.
