STATE GAMES OF OKLAHOMA Winter 2018 Registration is OPEN!
We will be hosting the Winter Games at our Downtown OKC location on Saturday Jan 27th!
Youth, Adult, and Collegiate Team Divisions
Climbers earn points based on the height and/or difficulty of routes. More difficult and longer climbs have higher point values. There may be intermittent "scored" holds for progressive credit with the highest point values earned upon reaching the top of a climb without falls (or hangs).
Total points of all routes climbed will be tallied for a climber’s final score -
so the more climbing one does the higher their score.
Routes will be top-rope, lead (for qualified climbers/categories), and auto-belays.

State Games of Oklahoma Summer 2017 - Report
The State Games of Oklahoma, Summer season, was held Saturday, August 26 at Climb Up in Norman. The competition took place in two phases with the youth categories climbing first and the adult categories climbing in the afternoon.
This competition was a hybrid-Olympic format style competition, the first of its kind. It combined three disciplines of climbing; speed, bouldering, and top-rope/lead for a combined final score. All of this was an open format ("redpoint style") where competitors selected the climbs they wished to attempt (from a pool of climbs), and the order in which they wish to attempt them.
Thank you to all the participants, volunteers, staff, and State Games organization that helped make this event possible. Congratulations to the medalists! Photos and more to be posted.
State Games - Bouldering 2017
We would like to sincerely thank the competitors, volunteers, staff and the Oklahoma City All Sports Association for the opportunity to make this a successful event. Looking forward to the Summer Games later this year!
Final results for the State Games of Oklahoma Bouldering Competition are posted below.
Note: Ties were decided by counting the attempts within the five boulder problems scored, less attempts received the higher rank. The 4th place tie in Female Youth D remained as the cards were equal in attempts.
Saturday, Jan 28
The Oklahoma State Games Bouldering Competition at Climb Up in Norman is an indoor rock climbing event open to amateur climbers of all ages and abilities. The competition will be a single session “redpoint” format where climbers get to pick which climbs they attempt. Points are earned upon completion of a climb with more difficult climbs being worth more points. A competitor’s top five best/ hardest climbs are summed for their final score.
