THE BIG SEND
A Boulder League and Scramble Competition.
The SBB Anniversary is just around the corner which means, the BIG SEND is coming!
SBB Bayers Lake is turning 1 and SBB Gottingen will be turning 6 this summer. In order to celebrate, we’re organizing the biggest competition in SBB history. Welcome to the BIG SEND! This competition will be held in two phases. The first will be the month long BOULDER LEAGUE during the month of May. Phase two will be the BIG SEND scramble competition with finals on June 5th. To win the ultimate BIG SEND title, you must compete in both events! We also have a tone of prizes to give out along the way thanks to the amazing support from our sponsors!
Big thanks to these awesome partners for providing prizes and support!

Here’s how it works:
The BOULDER LEAGUE is a month long bouldering league that will take place at both SBB locations during the month of May. This month long scramble is free to participate for members, or the price of an admission for non-members. In order to register, all you have to do is grab a scorecard from our front desk staff for each week of the BOULDER LEAGUE!
From each reset that month, two at Gottingen and two at Bayers lake, 10 Boulders will be defined as the Scramble Boulders. These climbs will be identified by a random number and will be taped by color of holds vs the color of circuit. There will also be a new SURPRISE for our climbers each week…
Participants will receive a scorecard from the front desk staff and will have until the following Monday to send as many climbs as possible. Participants must make sure they return their scorecard to the front desk staff by the Monday after the reset to be included in the scoresheet. If a score card is handed in late, they will not be accepted for that week's scramble. That means participants will have to fill a total of 4 score cards for each reset during the month of May and must provide each card to the front desk before each respective deadline detailed below. We will tally the scores every week and post an updated scoresheet so you can keep track of your position within the BOULDER LEAGUE throughout the month.
Participants will have until May 31st to return their final scorecard to the front desk, we will tally the final score and announce the winners of the BOULDER LEAGUE during finals of the BIG SEND!

THE BIG SEND SCRAMBLE COMP
June 5th 2021
It’s happening! In order to celebrate our anniversary, we’re (finally) hosting a full scale competition at our Bayers Lake location! Our SBB competitions are always open to all levels of climbers! From beginners to experts, there's something for everyone. Come test your skills on competition style problems!
We’ll be hosting qualifiers during the day and finals at night! You can expect food and drink specials throughout, sponsors, prizes, DJ, MC and if Covid allows it, we’ll have spectators for the finals! The gym will be open to competitors only during THE BIG SEND and spectators to be determined. For climbers who do not wish to compete, our Gottingen location will be open during the day.
Here’s how it works:
There will be three rounds of qualifiers during the day, one for youth and three for Open. Each round will have 2.5h to complete as many boulders as possible. Only the top 6 hardest climbs completed will count in your final score. After qualification, prizes will be handed to the top 6 Youth. The top 6 Men and Women for the Open Category will move on to compete in the finals round!
We’re hoping to be able to have spectators during finals. However, we’ll have to wait until we’re closer to the event to see what our options are! We’ll post an update once we have more information!
Youth 20$+ tax (15 yrs and under)
Adult Qualifiers 25$ +tax (16 yrs and over)
Registration opens on May 3rd 2021 at sevenbaysbouldering.com/shop/
