The Recreation, Fitness, and Wellness Center at the University of Southern Indiana will be hosting a bouldering competition for USI students on Sunday, October 23.

Bouldering is a form of rock climbing two to five meters off the ground that does not involve the use of ropes and harnesses. Climbers will be allowed to attempt a climbing route as many times as needed for completion in the allotted time. Scores will be based upon completion of the routes.

The competition will be preceded by a mandatory meeting at 12:30 p.m. to review the rules and expectations of the competition. The bouldering competition will start at 1 p.m. and is expected to last until 3 p.m. or until all competitors are finished. An awards ceremony will follow at 3:30 p.m.

The competition has two divisions: beginner and intermediate for both men and women. Climbing level will be determined on the day of the competition. The RFWC does not have a set limit for the competition, but would prefer to keep competitor numbers to 25 or less.

Sign-ups for the competition are only online at

Prizes will be given out for each participant, and prizes will be awarded for the top three places in each class (Beginners-Men, Beginners-Women, Intermediate-Men, Intermediate-Women). Sign up early as the competition is expected to fill quickly.
