Everyone! Each round has 30 problems ranging from very easy to very hard - so it really is an event for all climbers and all abilities. We want everyone to come away with at least a few problems tackled and a smile on their face!

Kids too! There is a separate category for Under 12s, who get to use any colour feet to help complete the climbs.

  

Why take part?

It's FUN 😊 A bit of friendly competition is a great way to make climbing fun! Whether that's competing against other climbers, friends or yourself.
It's sociable 😊 Competition nights bring a lively crowd down to the wall. It's a great way to meet other climbers and to climb and compete together.
It's good for your climbing 😊 Each round you can aim to beat your last score, so you can see your progression over the winter. Competitions are also a great chance to pick up tips and tricks from other climbers, and to see lots of different people climbing the same blocs.

  

How does it work?

Simply turn up any time from 4pm onwards, sign in as usual and pick up a scorecard from reception. There's no extra charge for competing, so plenty of pennies left for a tasty pizza or hot drink!

You'll need to fill in your Scorecard as you climb and calculate your final score at the end of the night.

Scorecard

  • 1st go = 10 points
  • 2nd go = 7 points
  • 3rd go = 4 points
  • Any go = 1 point 

Here's an example:
