Escalation. The Blocks Contest makes followers at the MJC

Since the integration of climbing in the Olympic Games, bouldering contests are becoming more and more present within clubs. Thus, this year the climbing club of the MJC of Rodez was able to participate in three events in Saint-Affrique, Millau and Rodez, within its club. But what is a Block Contest? The objective is to allow each participant to climb freely on walls 4.20 m high. The climbers are not insured and the falls are adorned by landing mats 40 cm thick. In a Contest, everyone climbs at the same time. Each participant has about thirty blocks to complete in a given time. There is no limit on tries, participants can try the blocks as many times as they want. Attempts are not counted, only successes count. More information on:
