The CWIF Registration



UPDATE 14/02/17 - Fully booked

All competitor spaces are now fully booked.  We will now sort through the competitor list to filter out any double entries so we may be able to release a few more entries a couple of weeks beforehand.


rab CWIF 2017 Registration


We will be registering competitors through Bookeo this year to enable you to pay in advance at the same time as registering.  We are not insisting on pre-payment but it will save both us & you a lot of time on the day if we aren't dealing with 450 entry fees when you arrive - this will give you more time to warm up, have a brew & get in your competition headspace before you start your qualification session!


Qualification sessions:

Below is the time of each session. We will aim to get everyone into their preferred session but cannot guarantee any choices until after registration closes as we need to balance the numbers between each session.

Session 1: 0900-1200 

This session is intended for the most serious competitors who are likely to reach Semi Finals to give the most recovery time before Sunday so we get the best show possible!

If you're entering mainly for fun, please check out Session 3!

Session 2: 1300-1600

This is for those who don't climb well in the morning but are aiming for the Semi Finals.

We are also making this a special session for those Youth Academies / 12-17 y/o climbers who want to have some of the best climbers in the UK and abroad offer advice and beta for climbing the same problems they have just done.

Session 3: 1700-2000

Just like 2016 this new time slot is for those who want to have maximum fun at The Rab CWIF.  We'll be having DJ's and 5 special 'off-piste' circuit problems in this last session. We'll be having prizes for those in Fancy Dress and some of the off-piste problems may require it. This is the fun session!



The qualifying sessions will consist of a brand new circuit of 30 blocs in the grade range of Font5+ to Font7c.

A rough breakdown of the circuit is: 10blocs from Font5+ to Font 6b; 10blocs Font6b+ to Font7a; 10blocs Font 7a+ to Font 'hard'.

The holds will be from our Rab CWIF sponsors FlatholdAxis, Lapis, Bleaustone, X-Cult & Blocz providing a selection of beautifully crafted holds for you to try hard.





- If you have entered as a team, please note that ALL members must be registered individually.  Please make sure all team members put the team name in the 'Team Name' field. Registering a team name under your individual name DOES NOT give you 4 spaces. A team consists of 4 people that must be of mixed gender with at least one person from the other sex.

- If you are under 18 you must be a Junior Member of The Climbing Works or be signed in by an Adult member of The Climbing Works. If you coming as part of a Youth academy then please sure this consent form is filled in. If unsure please email for more information.

- Junior category is from 12yrs to 17yrs. Please note there will be NO specially set problems for children. They will compete on the qualifying circuit as set for adults. Although the competition is a fun day, it is set for adults so please be aware of this if bringing your under 18 along to compete.

- The booking will initially say registration is at 8am on 18th March, but this will really depend on which session you compete in.  Final sign in times will be confirmed by email once all of the places are full and we've assigned sessions to each competitor.

The Rab CWIF 2017 is supported by RabScarpa, Wild Country, FlatholdAxis Holds, Lapis, Bleaustone, X-Cult, Berghaus, Blocz and UKClimbing. These companies help make The CWIF what it is. Without this support, The CWIF would not be as much fun.

PLEASE TAKE YOUR TIME AND FILL IN ALL DETAILS BELOW -  Remember to choose your session carefully. We always have to move people around with Session 1 always the most popular. Session 3 this year will be the most fun so if you are here to enjoy The Rab CWIF, choose this now!
