Allez is a red point style roped climbing competition with both top-rope climbing, and lead climbing routes, using a rope and harnesses and working with a belayer. It is sanctioned by USA Climbing, the national governing body for competitive climbing in the United States. Representatives from the organization will be at the competition.

The USA Climbing-sanctioned Youth Competition will be held in the morning and a Citizens Competition, for anyone who wants to climb, will be held in the afternoon. Beginner through advanced routes available to climb in the competition.

In the red-point style, those who compete try to climb a route as many times as they want in the course of three hours, only receiving the points if they successfully climb it. Each competitors’ three highest point climbs are added together for the final score.

The Citizen's Competition will have prizes for winners, raffle for all and an after party with pizza.

Climbers from across the region, including Maryland, Northern Virginia and North Carolina will be climbing, said John H. Johnson, Crimper’s Manager. “Crimper’s is home for a youth team whose members will be competing. In past years there have been teams from all the nearby universities and colleges, as well as climbers from around Southwest Virginia and West Virginia.”

Crimper’s has invited professional route setters to work with local setters to create the competition climbs. Each route has a point value that corresponds with its level of difficulty, harder climbs are worth more points.

Allez is about people sharing a love of climbing and having a vibrant, happy experience.

Spectators are welcome and admission for spectators is free.
