Thank you to the Seattle Bouldering Project for hosting such a wonderful Regional!!!  With over 200 youth climbers participating, we were very lucky to have the SBP put on such a well run event.

A reminder that if you have a first round invite to the Divisional, the deadline to register for this event is Wednesday, December 10th at 10:59pm PST.  Register sooner than later and make sure that you get a confirmation e-mail back from USA Climbing. Please refer to the link at the top of this page to double check if you received a first round invite to the Divisional or contact me to make sure.


Please spend time getting to know the USA Climbing website.  It may be hard to find but almost every question regarding participating in youth climbing can be answered on the website.

Parents and youth, please consider volunteering at these events.  It's a great way to learn about the sport and it helps the comps run more smoothly.
