The Climbing Works is proud to be a partner of Move More June in Sheffield.
Move More is the project to increase activity and wellbeing in Sheffield. It aims to help Sheffield become the most active City in the UK by 2020. And influence meaningful improvement in the health, wellbeing and quality of life of everybody living in the city. It’s the huge support from the Council, the NHS, Activity and Wellbeing providers, businesses and individuals that makes Move More what it is.

- The Climbing Works and the Mini Works
Our annual Young Climbers Festival will be held this year on Thursday 31st August. The competition is aimed at young climbers aged 5 – 14 yrs who climb in the Mini Works as part of our weekly clubs, summer holiday sessions or children who use the centre with their parents.
For those who regularly attend the event you will notice that we have made some changes to the competition format for the 9 – 14 year olds. This year we will be running the competition like a ‘mini CWIF’, setting 20 boulder problems ranging from easy to hard for all ages and abilities to try. Participants will be split into smaller groups attempting the circuit under the supervision of one of our coaches. A mini final will then take place on the competition wall for the overall top 5 boys & girls. The finals will be followed by a presentation celebrating everyone’s achievements, the winners of each age category plus the overall winners. The main emphasis of the event is still fun and participation with the route setters setting wacky climbs for everyone to enjoy.
The event for 5 – 8 year olds will remain the same as last year and will take place in The Mini Works in the afternoon. Each group will have a coach who will help them attempt the 10 climbs set specifically for their age. The climbing will be followed by a presentation celebrating everyone’s achievements. We hope that the younger climbers will be able to arrive earlier to watch the finals before they start their competition.
