Advanced route setting workshop


Beyond Bouldering Adelaide Friday Nov 10th – Sunday Nov 12th


Time: 8:00 am to 4:00pm


If possible, local climbers will be invited to try the boulders in competitions to give real life feedback and confirm student setters proposals.

The goal of this workshop is to explore route setting techniques and strategies to set boulders and competition circuits that have the quality and feel of those in the World Cup. Presentations and classroom work sessions will provide a theoretical skeleton for the setting and climbing work.


The course will explore the following themes and methods:

  • Planning a competition circuit

  • Setting for complexity and why

  • Setting with intention and why

  • Building circuits for diversity and fairness

  • Building circuits for results and show

  • Creativity in the setting team

  • Forerunning: the heart of the process

  • Observation and result analysis

  • Tweaking the next round

  • Measure success in route setting: the guessing game
