Our 23rd Annual Bouldering Competition at GVSU!

For the first time in 23 years, we have had to cap competition registration due to high interest.

Our sincerest apologies to the people who typically compete but were not able to register before we reached capacity. Expect adjustments for next year's competition and we hope to see you then!

Spectators are welcome to watch the competition at no cost. Due to the home football game, free parking will only be available in Lot H. There is a $10 fee to park in the closer Lots C, F & G. A map of the Allendale campus may be found at Please Note that masks/ face coverings are required inside all GVSU facilities. No exceptions.
