ABOUT CLIMBING COMPETITION

There are 3 competition disciplines in sport climbing:
– Lead
– Speed
– Bouldering

Bouldering was officially introduced as a new climbing discipline in 1998. Bouldering competition consists of climbing without belay ropes on low walls. This competition type is marked by high difficulty concentrated into a short climbing problem and restricted competition time.

Climbers can attempt a climbing problem more than once while their score is determined by the overall number of routes and the number of attempts needed. The fewer the attempts, the most end-points achieved, the higher the scores. If the contestant failed to reach the end hold, the number of  zones point he/she reached will be awarded and calculated in the score. To determine the ranking among the contestants, the the maximum number of tops combined with the lowest number of attempts will be considered first, followed by the number of bonus points and the number of attempts needed to reach those bonus holds.

Bouldering puts a high standard on the requirement of power, strength and body dynamics of a climber. That’s why a bouldering competition is always thrilling and worth-enjoying!

攀石比賽有3大種類:
– 難度
– 速度
– 抱石

抱石自1998年起成為一項全新的攀石項目。抱石是指攀爬者在沒有繩索的情況下,只靠自身的力量於矮牆上進行攀爬。

攀爬者於比賽中需根據定線員制定的線路作賽,不限攀爬次數,但賽員成績將根據完成的線路及所需的攀爬次數而計算。完成線路越多,而所需的攀爬次數越少,成績就越高。如賽員未能完攀,於攀爬線路過程中所獲的獎勵點(Zones point)將計算於成績內。作賽賽員的成績排名方面,完成線路越多而所需的攀爬次數越少將獲首先計算再計算獲得的獎勵點以及獲取獎勵點所需的攀爬次數,如此類推。

抱石賽為高難度的攀石賽事,要求攀爬者於限定的比賽時間內,完成短而極具挑戰的攀爬路線,賽事可觀程度甚高。
