Scarpa Winter One-Off Tournament - PART II (S.W.O.T. 2)
The S.W.O.T in December was a fantastic success and just like any hollywood film that does really well - we're making a sequel. That's right The S.W.O.T. Part II comes to The Climbing Works for one weekend only starting Friday 15th January.
The S.W.O.T is an open to anyone competition that will run from Friday 15th January at 6pm to closing on Sunday 17th (8pm). There will be problems set on both the Berghaus Competition Wall and the main section of the wall, similar to the qualification circuit in the C.W.I.F. This competition is for everyone and anyone to try and is a bit different from the norm. This time we don't have the Wooden Scarpa holds as they are off elsewhere.
Scorecards cost £2 from reception, and are available from Friday to Sunday. As an incentive to come down on the Friday evening, anyone starting the comp then (rather than on Saturday or Sunday) will be entered into a bonus prize draw. You can keep hold of your scorecard until 8pm on Sunday, so you can try the problems at your leisure, but they must be handed in by closing to count, and to enter the prize draws. There are lots of Scarpa goodies to be given away when you hand in your scorecard so you can win something just for entering.
This competition is a different format to what you will be used to, with a maximum of 1000 for each problem topped divided between everyone who does the problem, regardless of number of attempts. This means if 50 people do a problem it'll be worth 20 points, but if a single person tops it then it's worth 1000, with highest overall score winning. There are separate categories for Male and Female Seniors and Juniors (U18).
Random Male Prize draw - 1 Pair of Scarpa Shoes
Random Female Prize draw - 1 Pair of Scarpa Shoes
1st Senior Male - 1 Climbing Works Sweatshirt or Tee
1st Senior Female - 1 Climbing Works Sweatshirt or Tee
1st Junior Male - 1 Climbing Works Sweatshirt or Tee
1st Junior Female - 1 Climbing Works Sweatshirt or Tee
Friday Night Entrant Prize Draws - 1 Pair of Scarpa Shoes / 1 Climbing Works Tee (this is open ONLY to people who PICKUP a scorecard on the Friday night - you can still hand in your scorecard Sunday)
Additional Entrants Prize Draws - 1 Climbing Works Sweatshirt / 1 Climbing Works Tee (just hand your scorecard back in before end of Sunday and you'll be in for a chance to win!)
The S.W.O.T will help you S.W.O.T. up for the B.I.F.F at the end of January and also The C.W.I.F. in March!
- The Climbing Works
The Beastmaker International Footless Festival (B.I.F.F) returns to The Climbing Works on Saturday 30th January.
The first B.I.F.F. was a bit of a crazy affair and we're excited to make this years just as bizarre as the first one. All the competitor places are now full and if you want to come watch you will need to pre-purchase tickets on our website here or at our front desk reception. You will need a ticket to get in.
We will be closing the centre an hour early on Saturday 30th (7pm instead of 8pm) so we can get the competition under way at 7.30pm. We expect the Finals to be around 10.30 with it all wrapped up at 11pm. We'll have drinks, pizza and snacks available on the evening and some high quality tunes to make it a fantastic evening.
