Burn Bouldering Series 2023-2024
Join us for the first event of our Burn 2023-2024 Series!
Sign up once, and you’re automatically registered for all FOUR events, with extra perks!
The Burn Bouldering Series is a long running competition series hosted across different PRG locations! The series consists of FOUR separate events, all with their own theme! During each event, competitors will have three hours to climb great boulders in an energetic environment.
Come for the climbing, stay for the costume contest! Dress up as your favorite character, monster, or anything in between and get your 15 seconds of fame as you walk down the red carpet to compete for the crowd’s attention!
Come join Philadelphia Rock Gym at our Malvern location to get out of the cold and feel the burn! Wear your ugliest sweater and try to win the crowds attention (or disgust) with our ugly sweater contest! Not to mention our fantastic climbs that will have your arms on fire!
Come to PRG East Falls and feel all warm and fuzzy inside with our heartwarming bouldering competition! Our fantastic climbs will get your heart pumping and your arms pumped out!
Feel the burn at our last event of the Burn Bouldering Series, including BOTH Youth Finals, and Adult Finals!
In each of the four events, climbers will receive points for the five highest point value climbs they finish. Every climb’s points depend on the difficulty of the climb. Harder climbs are worth more points! Scores will be compared to the other climbers in your category. Use them to see how you stack up, or use your score to keep track of your climbing throughout the season!
Novice category will start at VB, so everyone is encouraged to come enjoy the fun!
We like to end each of our events with a great show! After each competition, there will be a finals round for the Open category. The top 16 competitors of the event will put on a show for spectators as they battle with our hardest boulders, gladiator style! The only thing that can make it better is beer, and we have that too!
Our Burn Series has been blazing over 20 years for a reason! Each event is tailored to have fantastic boulder sets that are sure to keep you invested, engaged, and most importantly, psyched on bouldering. Our ranking system measures your progress, year over year, keeping you psyched to try hard and get better. Whether you are a newer climber, or experienced one, there is fun for everyone at these events!
