A bouldering competition generally consists of three rounds; these are a qualification round (consisting of 5 boulders), a semifinal round (4 boulders) and a final round (4 boulders). The semifinal round and final round are held on the same day. There is a minimum gap of 2 hours after the last competitor has finished their semifinal and the closure of the isolation for the final round.
The quota for the semifinal round is 20 competitors (when there is a tie for 20th place, all competitors in 20th place will go to the semifinal round). The quota for the final round is 6 competitors (when, after applying the countback procedure, there is a tie for 6th place, all competitors in 6th place will go to the final round).
There will be no countback to the qualification round when there were 2 sets of boulders (2 groups).
In case of a tie for the first place after the final round, a superfinal will be held following the lead rules (only in Championships).
Each boulder has marked starting holds (handholds and possibly footholds). The tophold will be marked with the same colour as the starting holds. Somewhere in between the starting holds and the tophold, a hold will be marked with another colour (the bonus hold).
Each boulder will be judged by a Boulder Judge.
All holds will be cleaned by the Boulder Judge before the first attempt of a competitor. The competitor is allowed to clean those holds that can be reached from the ground, but only with the official brushes.
