Bouldering is a style of rock climbing undertaken without a rope and normally limited to very short climbs so that a fall will not result in injury. It is typically practiced on large boulders or artificial man-made boulders however it can also be practiced at the base of larger rock faces.

Prize donations and sponsorship are provided by Access Fund, REI, Princeton Tec, Organic Climbing, Joshua Tree Products, Mo Climbing, and Eastern Mountain Sports.
