Boven Roc Rally 2012 registrations are open!! – Scroll down for more details and registration.
This is a yearly rock climbing endurance event that involves a team of two, racing between the cliff faces around Wonderland, Waterval Boven and doing as many climbs as you can in 8 hours on the first day, then climbing one route on day 2 pushing as hard as you can on the grade scale of difficulty.
Although the competition is tough and some take it very seriously, there is a serious festival component and the all round vibe is seriously chilled out and social. Most competitors wear costumes for the fancy dress awards which makes for a guaranteed laugh-a-minute, every minute!
As in a golf match, every climber gets given a handicap based upon his or her climbing performance over the last year and other personal best performances (see rules for more info).
Basically to win this competition, you will have to climb a lot (against your handicap) on the first day and then climb hard on the second day. A logical and fair but complicated system will be explained before the start of the competition. Read the rules carefully!
For the top climbers there is a special difficulty section where climbers focus on climbing at the absolute limit of their abilities. Only the most difficult 3 routes over 2 days count towards scoring and no handicap system is in place here.
