Boulder Problems

Problems added to the map should provide all information necessary for a climber to locate and identify the problem.

This includes the exact location of the problem, and information for exactly where the problem starts, and where it finishes.

Problems that do not include enough information to properly attempt, or problems that are simply unlikely to be enjoyed by other climbers, should be removed from the map.


Each problem should have a photo that shows a clear view of the entire problem. Landscape photos are prefered because it gives a much better idea of the problem's surroundings, making it easier to locate. Reusing the photo from another problem should be avoided, and instead a unique photo should be used to best show each problem.

Topo Line

The photo will be overlayed with a topo line that shows where the problem starts, how it ends, and the general path that the climber should take.

The start of the line (shown as a circle), should be placed directly on top of the start hold. Or if the climb starts on two holds, it should be placed in between those two holds.

The end of the line will indicate whether the problem is finished by topping out (), or by reaching a specific end hold ().


Variations such as sit starts, extensions, early top outs, isolated moves, link-ups, and eliminations can be added to a problem to give climbers more options of varying grades.

Adding variations to existing problems instead of creating a new problem is encouraged whenever it's possible to do so. This avoids cluttering the map with problems that are mostly the same as another problem.

The main route should always be the line of highest quality, and then variations should be added to this.
