Pit yourself against other boulderers from across Scotland in our National Bouldering League
The Scottish National Bouldering League (SNBL) is an accessible series of competitions for junior to verteran climbers, which takes place at six bouldering venues across Scotland each winter
ClimbScotland organises and coordinates SNBL in partnership with member climbing walls of the Scottish Climbing Wall Network.
Becasue it is a league with six competitions it’s not all about who is the best on the day, but also who is willing to travel and attend as many of the different rounds throughout Scotland as possible to build up their ranking against local climbers.
The league uses one of the scheduled rounds of each host walls’ winter bouldering competitions. There are six rounds, one each month from October to March. Scoring after each round is ranked. The best four scores by a competitor will be used to decide the final placings and the Scottish Bouldering Champions. This means competitors have additional chances to increase their ranking by doing more than the minimum four rounds!!

Your free entry
To enter the league simply attend the SNBL round at the host walls and indicate when you take part that you wish to be entered into the SNBL. There is no additional cost. The final scores and prizes will be given out at Round 6 in March.
Because each climbing wall offers a different kind of competition and uses a different scoring system, we rank the individual round winners in the different categories and the ranked scores are totalled to find the winner after all rounds have been completed. The best 4 results out of 6 are used for the final rankings. Ranked scores will be posted here and notified through the ClimbScotland Facebook page after each round, so competitors can keep track of their potential placings.
