KAYA | SG Boulder League

Friday, September 3rd, 2021

The SG Boulder League is back!

August 9 – September 3, 2021
Open to all who want to participate! With a relative scoring system, climbers of all levels and abilities have the chance to win. Join the fun and sign up through KAYA today!

THE BASICS:

Participation is FREE and scoring is based on the relative grade limit for the climber. All boulders in Seattle and Bellevue will be part of the league.

The league starts with a community event kick-off on August 9th and ends September 3rd. Winners will be announced shortly after. Get psyched and try hard!

CHALLENGE FORMAT:

  • Skill level: choose the hardest grade you can send in 5 tries
  • Individual event: no team, no categories and no repeats
  • Prizes awarded to the top 3 competitors from each gym (SEA/BEL), including great gear, fun t-shirts, and more!

RULES:

  • Scoring is based off of self-reported V-Max grades (a grade you can send in 5 go’s – or less – on a regular basis). 
    • 100 points for routes completed at your V-Max grade. 
    • 10 additional points for every grade above that. 
    • 10 points subtracted for climbs below your V-Max. 
    • (Example: a V7 V-Max grade will receive 120 points for a V9 but only 80 points for a V5.) 
    • 1 point will also be deducted for each attempt.
  • Sandbaggers beware! V-Max grades will be bumped when necessary. 
  • Climbs must be logged in KAYA, anytime from Aug 9th – Sep 3rd.
    • Download the KAYA app and add Stone Gardens Bellevue or Seattle as your home gym; the League will pop up in your feed. 
  • Be sure to follow the live, ongoing leaderboard in KAYA to track your progress and compete!

Summer Camps Re-Imagined

Sunday, August 1st, 2021

Smaller camp sizes, more time outside and creative thinking.

These are trying times for everyone, including parents and kids. With the challenges of social distancing, the pressures of remote, online and home school learning and a growing need to keep kids entertained at home; we could all use a little light to brighten this uncertain tunnel.

That is why we are committed to providing re-imagined summer camps that will engage and inspire kids to keep climbing and explore the outdoors.

Building off Edgeworks’ success running camps last summer, we’re confident in our ability to provide healthy programs for all skill levels: beginner, intermediate + advanced.

REGISTER NOW!

Planning ahead

Recognized by WA state as a “low risk sport”, we continue to work with state guidelines to ensure a healthy + safe return to indoor climbing — the same is true for our Summer Camps.

Reduced Camp Sizes

The health and well-being of our members, guests + staff continues to be paramount in our decision-making. For that reason, camp sizes have been reduced from 12 participants to 8.

The following set of community health guidelines has been implemented to help mitigate health risks for our employees + campers. Upon registering, campers will also receive additional information specific to their camp experience.

More Time Outside

We anticipate that state guidelines will continue to limit the number of people allowed inside the gym at one time. The good news is that so much of our Summer Camp programming, fun and adventure can be done outside!

Our amazing Youth Program and Outdoor Guide staff are researching a variety of local outdoor locations for our Adventure Rock camps to still enjoy some much needed outdoor adventure this summer!

Silver Linings

Every challenge brings opportunity, and for us that opportunity has been to re-imagine our camp structures and develop new curriculum to further engage and inspire campers to keep climbing and explore the outdoors. Our staff have brainstormed some really fun ideas that may just result in better than ever experiences for our campers!

Keeping You Updated

As news from the state and updates to the “Roadmap to Recovery” plan continue to develop, our plans may change. We will be sure to keep you updated with any necessary adjustments to our programming, schedule and/or transportation.

We also invite you to check our website, Facebook and Instagram accounts or drop us an email:

Bellevue: bellevue@stonegardens.com
Seattle: seattle@stonegardens.com
Tacoma: tacoma@edgeworksclimbing.com

We’d be happy to hear from you!
