VRCG and Climb and Conquer Society are bringing you an all day extravaganza to help raise money and get at-risk-youth into climbing. This event isn’t really about competing its about you and the rock. So why not do it in a beautiful setting with your friends cheering you on?
Come crush some mega-classic problems, win draw prizes, make friends, chill…
$15 gets you your score card and if you sign up early by August 17 Sat, it gets you a free tank top too!
*All your admissions go to Climb and Conquer Society Canada (a Vancouver charity that teaches climbing to at-risk youth to help them build healthy self-esteem and leadership skills).
We are hand selecting the best problems underneath the shadow of the epic Stawamus Chief that will be suitable for anyone from the beginner to the ultimate rock crushers.
– Early Bird (until August 17 Sunday) comes with a complimentary comp tank top. You will need to pay now to reserve tank top.
*All proceeds go to Climb and Conquer (a Vancouver charity that teaches climbing to at-risk youth)

Your top 6 problems will be taken as your score and you must have 2 witnesses sign your scorecard. Also, please keep track of how many tries you had because that could affect your ranking in case there’s a tie. You’ll need the Squamish Bouldering Guide to navigate to the problems. Bring your own pad.
Your top SIX (6) problems count towards your score.
You can climb problems of any grade, the categories are just for reference. However if you climb too many outside of your category the judges may bump you up into the higher category.
Please record number of tries. This is what counts in a tiebreaker.
You can only count a send if you are stood on top of the boulder! (unless the problem doesn’t allow for it…)
Dabbing disqualifies a send. Come back down and try again.
This comp is peer judged, you need two sets of initials from witnesses to prove you got the send. Volunteers can count for both if there is no one else around.
Please do not warm up on a problem that isn’t in your category range. There are many easy routes in the forest that you can warm up on!
Please do not try to climb problems that do not have adequate spotters or crash pads.
Please generously spot each other and share pads!
Please pick up ALL trash.
We will be keeping hold of lost items, if you find something that isn’t yours, please hand it in to a volunteer.
Please stick to designated trails whilst moving around the forest.
Squamish is our home and backyard, a natural beauty we protect and enjoy. At this event, we climbers will demonstrate impeccable stewardship and conservation. We will give each athlete a garbage bag. When you turn in your scorecard at the end of the comp. and show to Rampage Registration Team that you have volunteered to collect your own trash and other people’s trash you saw in the forest, you will be given 5 more raffles to enter the draw prizes as a reward and thank you.
