Strategies for onsight bouldering competitions

It’s finally here! The one resource for your most asked questions. A strategy guide to onsight bouldering competitions.

I’ve compiled information with input from various respected sources in the industry. Learn how to prepare yourself for competition day from insights into training preparation to strategies when on the competition floor. Learn how to adapt to warm up spaces that look like a toddlers warm-up wall (to quote Alex Puccio from 2016 Boulder Nationals) and take the mystery out of what to expect by reading this guide.

I hope you find this useful. One coach was eager to get his hands on this to distribute to his team and their parents. If this works for you, great! If not, that’s great too, but I’m always open to learning new things and hearing other’s perspectives. Drop me a line and tell me how you do your thing for comps. What works for you and what do you think could be useful to keep in mind for others. I’d love to hear and I’m sure others would benefit from the input, too.

Thank you for reading and I hope you get something out of this. Happy competing!
