University Bouldering Series

University Bouldering Series  University Bouldering Series

The University Bouldering Series (UBS) is a series of bouldering competitions that occur on Saturdays, early spring semester at schools in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. The UBS competitions have been occurring on an annual basis for the past several years and are a way for climbers at each of the schools to come together, climb hard and compete, and have fun in an environment appropriate for beginners to advanced climbers. It is a competition, but emphasis is not on winning at all costs, prizes, etc., but rather on pushing individual limits and hanging out with like-minded peers in a bouldering session format. Each individual school does their best to host an outstanding comp, and the focus is on excellent variety of problems, and T-shirts, prizes, swag are not guaranteed, but recognition for the winners will occur. Series results will be compiled and it is the desire of the series organizers to award the series winners with great recognition as well as prizes. Please contact each individual school for questions about their competition.
