After a successful second edition last year, the Flatlander Cup will return once again in Arnhem. Like last year the Flatlander Cup consists out of 2 disciplines; lead and boulder. There will both be specific rankings for lead and boulder, as well as a combined overall ranking. Like last year the competition will have an international character; youth climbers of all nationalities are welcome to participate. Last year we hosted 120 competitors from the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, UK and Switzerland. The following categories will be differentiated: Juniors, Youth A, Youth B and Youth C. Mammut and La Sportiva are our main sponsors; they will provide a prize package with a value of € 4000 !
The Flatlander Cup is a two-day-event. We offer climbers and their companions the possibility to stay the night at a camp site. The overnight stay at the camp site is including a breakfast on the sunday morning. Please refer to the information sheet for more information.
During the Flatlander Cup both bouldering and lead climbing will be featured. You can compete in either one or both, as there will be seperate rankings and a combined ranking lead/boulder.
The boulder competition will take place at RijnBoulder. All categories will climb 8 qualification boulders. Per boulder there will be a maximum of 5 attempts. In each category the 6 best girls and the 6 best boys will qualify for the finals. In the finals we use the IFSC semi final format.
The lead competition will take place at Mountain Network Arnhem, the climbing centre is just a 2 minutes walk from RijnBoulder. During the qualifications, 3 routes will be climbed flash per category. Again, the 6 best girls and the 6 best boys will qualify for the finals where one route will be climbed on-sight.
