In 1998, the NUS Climbing Club invited like-minded individuals for a day of climbing in the NUS Bouldering Gym and
this invitation has reached more and more climbing enthusiasts over the years. As the number of participants grew,
NUS Climbing Club and TeamNUS Climbing jointly organized a climbing event that goes beyond the NUS Bouldering Gym
- Boulderactive. This event that was inaugurated in 2001 became the first ever national-scale climbing-related
competition, increasing the profile of bouldering in the public community. The inception of Boulderactive was a
milestone in the local climbing scene, triggering zealous interest for the sport.
Boulderactive has successfully attracted the attention of climbers both locally and regionally in the 18 years it has been running, evolving into one of the most highly anticipated climbing events annually. This year, as we celebrate 22 years of BA, we welcome one and all to join us in this exciting climbing journey! With the inaugural SEA Boulder League and Tokyo Olympics 2020 coming up, we are proud to be pushing Singapore climbing to new heights!

In recent years, climbing as a sport has seen unprecedented growth, both in Singapore, and across the world. It is
heartening to see the climbing community flourish, and how more are getting to know this sport we have all grown
to love. It remains the case, however, that competitions in Singapore remain uncharted to many of these climbers,
mostly because they see it as an incredibly daunting activity that they are inadequately prepared for. This year,
Boulderactive hopes to remove these barriers, and show everyone that BA2019 is not just for the “competitive”
climbers, and that there’s a climb for everyone. This year, not only is our carnival climb back bigger and better,
we have a special segment: the Olympic Challenge in commemoration of climbing becoming part of the Olympics 2020.
Not forgetting, our competitive categories will be part of the inaugural SEA Bouldering League this year. So
there’s definitely an event for everyone, and we hope that through BA2019, every climber will come out better,
wherever they are, whoever they are. So join us!
