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.

As per USAC rules, all Youth B and older competitors can expect at least one lead climb during the comp.

Please Volunteer
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.
