Rab CWIF 2018 Registration


We will be registering competitors through Bookeo this year.  We charge the standard wall entry fee to compete at CWIF, which must (where applicable) be paid for in advance.  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 head-space before you start your qualification session!

If you have paid upfront for year / 3 month / month entry (which will still be valid on 10th March) you don't need to pay, same if you are a VIP (e.g. GB team member).  If you think you should be a VIP but we may not have it on the system then contact Graeme to check (

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 / 14-17 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 & 2017 this 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!

If you think you are likely to qualify for the Semis, please try to register for Session 1 or 2!



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: 8 blocs from Font 5+ to Font 6b+; 12 blocs Font 6c to Font 7a; 10 blocs Font 7a+ to Font 'hard'.

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





- 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 14yrs 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 10th 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 2018 is supported by RabScarpa, SquadraAxis Holds, Lapis, Bleaustone, X-Cult, 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 for maximum fun and aren't expecting to reach the Semis of The Rab CWIF, choose this now!

Due to the popularity of the Rab CWIF you may have difficulty signing in to Bookeo immediately as it can only process 20 bookings per 2 minutes, if this is the case please try again 5 minutes later.
