Moon Rock

  • The Biggest Bouldering Competition in Colorado

  • A $10,000 Cash Purse, $10,000+ in Prizes, and Trophies at Every Level

  • Gear Giveaways, Food Trucks, Free Beer and a Vendor Village


Moon Rock is an epic, daylong event and bouldering competition hosted by G1 Climbing + Fitness that brings in Olympian-level, professional, and Team USA Climbing athletes. It also serves the direct community via citizens’ competition categories. It’s arguably the biggest non-sanctioned bouldering event in the Front Range!

The citizen categories allow the average climber (and gym goer) the opportunity to compete to win or podium in beginner, intermediate, and advanced level categories. The V1 climber has as much of a chance at winning as the V12 climber! Spectators are welcome to come and win raffles and engage with industry leaders such as Black Diamond, Trango, Scarpa, and Cotopaxi, as well as small, local businesses. The evening event draws in our highest spectator numbers and includes a roaring crowd cheering on elite athletes.

Don’t forget to support the local food scene by stopping by the 4 Noses table for beer and grab something from the food trucks during Moon Rock too!


Test your climbing skills in a redpoint style competition! Each group in the Citizens Category is designed for you to compete against climbers at your ability level. Trophies and prize packages for the top three finishers in each category. Prizes range from climbing shoes to boulder pads and more!

All groups, excluding the Masters group, will have a male and female division. Registration for the Citizens Category includes a t-shirt, raffle ticket, a free beer (21+), and all day entry to the event. *Each category must have at least six participants to run.

  • Beginner: V0 – V2 Climbers
  • Intermediate: V3 – V5 Climbers
  • Advanced: V6 – V8 Climbers
  • Master Class: All Climbers Age 40+
  • Paraclimbing: All Paraclimbing Athletes


With a modified redpoint style qualifier, and an onsight style final, the Open Category of Moon Rock will be competing for $10,000, with cash prizes being awarded to the top six male and female competitors!  Registration for the Open Category includes a t-shirt, raffle ticket, one free beer (21+), and all day entry to the event. 

  • Open Category — For V8+ Climbers


Moon Rock has grown to a two-day event! Not interested in competing? We will have games, vendors, food trucks, raffles, day of  deals, and plenty of talented climbers to watch! Spectator tickets are valid for both days.
