The Deep Water Solo Comp returns to Tuck Fest with a $15,000 cash purse up for grabs on the world’s first Deep Water Solo climbing complex. Qualifying and Seeding Rounds will take place on Friday followed by Finals on Saturday. In the Qualifying Round, climbers will be racing the clock to complete three qualifying routes. The top 16 male and female climbers will move on to the seeding round. In the Finals, climbers will compete head-to-head based on their seeding in a single elimination tournament style bracket. Fastest climber to the top of the wall will advance in each head-to-head round until a champion is crowned. All applications must be submitted online by April 1, 2018.
This competition has limited space available and features an application process which is in addition to Tuck Fest registration. 50 climbers of each gender will be selected and notified no later than April 10.
