Indoor Weekly: Understanding USA Climbing Scoring System

USA Climbing has a new scoring system for Bouldering, which went into effect during the 2018 Nationals.

It had been used before and will surely be picked up by other competitions. The scoring is ranked in a five-point zone, 10 and 15 and 25 for the top. Every try deducts 0.01 points.

Watch Alex Puccio in Finals at the USA Nationals to see the points on the wall.

It’s a little confusing when you start adding up attempts, high points and low falls.

Alex Puccio and Nathaniel Coleman won the USA 2018 Nationals. See more here.
