Boulderdash Climbing Competition

2016 Belmont Boulderdash

Boulderdash, Fitness and Recreation’s longest standing fitness tradition, completed the latest edition of the annual climbing competition. Celebrating the 15th year, this year’s competition featured 20 climbers competing on 31 routes designed and built by student staff to challenge climbers of all skill levels. The top three highest scorers then competed in a final challenge to determine winners.

Beginning in the spring of 2003, Boulderdash is a climbing competition that aims to test man and woman against a wall and gravity all while building the outdoor community. The competition goal is to earn the most points by completing various routes and boulder problems. Boulderdash XV focused on boulder problems only to increasingly challenge climbers with skills ranging from recreational climber to advanced climber.
“I think one of the best things was to see everyone come together as a community and celebrate the challenges we were all able to conquer,” said sophomore competitor Christina Farber. “It didn’t matter what skill level anyone was climbing at, everyone was challenged and everyone got to walk away feeling accomplished.”

This year’s winners were Will Renner in the men’s division and Tatiane Komrij in the women’s division. The event was sponsored by local businesses including Chago’s Cantina, Climb Nashville, Bai Tea, The Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee, The Crag, and Mountain High. These sponsors contributed around $800 in prizes and food for the evening. Be on the lookout for the 16th edition of Boulderdash in the spring of 2019 as well as other programs this spring semester from Outdoor Recreation.
