WELCOME TO THE 8TH ANNUAL BOLD CITY BOULDERFEST 

NOVEMBER 2ND, 2019

 

The Bold City Boulderfest is our annual Bouldering competition featuring Adult Onsight Finals, where the strongest climbers in the South East can compete for cold hard CASH! Each year we strive to grow and provide a spectacular event while strengthening our local and regional communities!

Youth Competitor? Adult Competitor? Register here!

The Bold City Boulderfest is our most anticipated competition of the year!

Boulderfest starts out our annual competitions each Fall. We host Boulderfest in the Fall, Ropefest in the Spring, and Summerfest, a combined Boulder/Sport Climbing competition, in the Summer to finish it out.

Unlike the other events, Boulderfest has a cash purse for the top three winners for Male and Female Open Categories, after duking it out in an Onsight Final! This year, the pot is $1700 total!

GET $10 OFF AND A FREE EVENT SHIRT WHEN YOU PRE-REGISTER BY OCTOBER 20TH

You can register online, over the phone (904) 683-2512 or in person before the event to get ahead of the line! If you haven’t completed a waiver yet, don’t forget to do that too! Every competition, we try to estimate the crowd size as easily as possible so we know what we’re all getting into! By pre-registering you help us prepare, and as our way of saying thanks we want to offer you $10 off registration and a guaranteed free event shirt.

For those of you that miss pre-registration, or opt to register day-of instead, you’ll be paying full price for registration ($50), and we can’t guarantee a shirt for you. We will have extra shirts for sale- but they’ll be first-come-first-serve, and once we’re out, that’s it!
