The Dark Horse Championship Round will be the final competition of the four part USA Climbing National Cup Series! It is the last big event of the USAC adult bouldering season, two weeks before Bouldering Open Nationals in Salt Lake City, UT, and there will be a 10K+ cash purse, combining USAC and MetroRock cash, making this one of the largest payouts of any US bouldering competition!
Additionally, as part of the National Cup Series, competitors will receive points from their ranking at the Dark Horse Championship that will be part of a National ranking system for pro climbers, so it's bound to bring out the best of the best! Lastly, instead of a qualifying round on the same day as the finals, the Pros (Open Category) will be going at it on Friday night in a Redpoint Format Qualifying round. It is here that we will see who moves on to prove themselves on the big stage Saturday night and take the title of Dark Horse Champion!
