The Bouldering V-SUM pushes both rock climbing technique and strength.

Boulder for 50 minutes, completing a minimum of 8 problems. You can complete/attempt as many boulder roblems as you want, but you have to complete at least 8. Also, you can’t count the same problem more than once for your V-Sum.

For example, an athlete completes these problems in 50 minutes:

V0

V0

V1

V2

V2

V3

V2

V2

V1

V1

V2

His top 8 problems are these: V2, V2, V2, V2, V2, V3, V1, V1

His V-Sum is 2+2+2+2+2+3+1+1 = 15

The goal is to score highest V-Sum possible. Again – you have a 50 minute time limit after the warm up, and can’t repeat the same problem. Your V-Sum is computed from 8x different problems.
