What is the Format?
The Youth portion of the event will be held under a Flash Format. Each Age Group will climb 3 to 4 separate routes, receiving a score for their highest point reached. Climbers will watch a PRG Forerunner climb each of their routes prior to the beginning of the session; therefore, there will be no isolation. For more information regarding this or other formats, please consult the USA Climbing Rulebook.
 
The Citizens and Open portions of the event will be held under a Red-point format. Climbers will be scored on their best 5 routes, using the total number of falls to break ties. Open Climbers will also compete in an Onsight final.

All competitors, parents and coaches are expected to be familiar with the rules prior to attending the competition.
Please note: Formats are subject to change at any time, subject to the discretion of the PRG. Please call or check back for updated information.

What about Lead Climbing?
As per USAC rules, all Youth B and older competitors can expect at least one lead climb during the comp. For the adults, lead climbing is optional during the red-point format. All competitors who lead must either be currently certified for Lead at a PRG Climbing Center or through an equivalent course. The PRG reserves the right to revoke or refuse Lead Climbing privileges for any climber at any time, for any reason.

How can I help?
It takes a lot of dedicated individuals to put on an exceptional competition. We are always looking for interested volunteers who can help make these events the best they can possibly be. In particular, volunteers can help with:

       Judging Routes
       Scoring
       Set Up
       Forerunning
       ...and Route Setting

If you would like to volunteer for the Rope Burn in April in any one of these areas, please contact Randi Goldberg
