The BlocTour is entering the next round

The Bloctour is a fun bouldering competition that has existed since 2018 and is becoming increasingly popular and is now going into the next round in 2024, which is bigger than ever. 5 regions (Tyrol, Vorarlberg, Eastern Switzerland, South Tyrol, Lake Constance region) from 4 countries are represented at the BlocTour with a total of 23 halls.

Anyone (ages 8 and up) can join the BlocTour for his/her home hall. 20.3 boulders will be marked in each participating hall during the qualification period (March 1.5.24th - May 40st, 1). Boulders 30-11 are youth boulders, boulders 40-XNUMX are for the open class.

You get one point in the scoring app for each boulder you complete, and 1,2 points for each boulder you complete. The more points collected in the halls of a region, the better the ranking.

In each region, the top 10 qualify as so-called hard movers and the top 10 based on the average points as soft movers for the region finals. In addition to the regional winners, the indoor challenge cup is also contested there, which is endowed with a generous amount of beer.
