Heart & Soul Charity Event

Welcome to Heart & Soul 2021!

2021 Top Sponsors: Groove Auto, Xcult, Friction Labs, Organic

Heart & Soul is a fun, inclusive competition for climbers of all levels. Come enjoy some top-quality boulders and support a worthy cause! We’ve reworked the competition format to minimize COVID risk for our members, guests, and employees. This year’s Heart & Soul will be a multi-day event held at all three DBC locations from 2/19-2/28. The DBC will continue normal operations during the entire competition period. Participants and non-participants welcome.

Our setters have put up 60 fresh boulders for the occasion: 20 at North, 20 at Central and 20 at South. Follow the link below to choose your competition category and receive your scorecard. Sweet prizes await those with the highest scores in their category, at each gym and overall!

Good luck to all competitors!

We’ll be giving again this year to help fund advancements in medical research at the University of Colorado’s Anschutz Campus. The DBC will donate a portion of event registration fees, and we welcome any other support the climbing community is willing to offer. If you would like to make an additional contribution, please visit our fundraising page. Your donation will be transferred in its entirety to the Anschutz Research Department and is tax-deductible.

We’re so grateful to everyone who has made Heart and Soul a success over the years. Our 2020 competition raised over $16,000, bringing our seven-year total to more than $85,000! None of this would have been possible without our amazing community of climbers. Thank you, and we can’t wait to climb with you again at the 8th Annual Heart and Soul!

Feel free to reach out with any questions.

See you at the comp!

Thanks to everyone who made 2020 our best year yet and congrats to our finalists for a great showing!

The event is held at the Denver Bouldering Club’s central location near downtown Denver. We set exceptional competition boulder problems for all ages/abilities, offer tons of door prizes, food, & cash prizes!

Even if you don’t climb in the comp, spectators can come watch the Open category crush some hard plastic, enjoy some free food, and climb a few routes yourself for cancer research!

A portion of proceeds from the event will be donated to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
