Join us for the 5th installation of the Wisconsin Indoor Climbing Series! UW River Falls is excited to announce its second annual Off The Wall climbing comp. Climbers can expect over 50 routes and problems in this duel style competition. All skill levels are welcome and encouraged to compete; scores will be combined for each style and placed into beginner, intermediate, and advanced divisions for males and females. Registration is now open at go.uwrf.edu/foa; the cost is $30 for any UW or UM student and $35 for community members. A t-shirt is included in registration.
Off The Wall is an open-format, which means any climber may attempt any route or problem as soon as it becomes available. Scoring will be based on the number of attempts needed to flash a route. Each failed attempt will decrease the total amount of points, with the lowest score being awarded after 3 attempts. Routes will be monochromatic and belayers/spotters will sign off all scorecards. In the event of a tie, the number of attempts will be taken into consideration, and the climber with the least amount of attempts will win.

As with other with other WICS competitions, the 18 winners of the divisions will be raffled first, separate from other climbers.

Once the winners are chosen, the other competitors will raffle for the rest of the prize pool.
