Ultimate Ascent is the 2013 FIRST Robotics Competition, played on a 27 by 54 foot field. Two alliances, composed of three robots each, compete against each other to score the maximum number of points. Points can be scored initially in the 15 second autonomous period, in which robots on each side may shoot at any of the three goals on their side for double points. At any time during the teleoperated period, robots may begin to climb their alliance pyramid, earning ten points for each 30″ level climbed.
