WELCOME TO THE 6TH ANNUAL BOLD CITY BOULDERFEST – OCTOBER 21ST, 2017

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!

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!
