Events - March 2019
As part of the Sheffield Universities Varsity sports events we are hosting Varsity Climbing on Wednesday 20th March.
Competitors from The University of Sheffield & Sheffield Hallam University will be competing on a 25 problem qualification circuit from 2pm, with the top 4 male & female competitors battling it out for top spot in the Finals on the Rab Competition Wall from approximately 5pm to 6pm.
We'll probably be a bit busier than usual in the afternoon & the Rab Competition Wall will be out of action for the finals! Don't forget we now open at 10am on Wednesdays, so if you prefer a quieter daytime session, try and head down a bit earlier.
Students from the University of Sheffield & Sheffield Hallam just pay their standard wall entry fee of £6.25 (as it's off peak) plus £1 for a scorecard to compete. You can sign in and warm up before 2pm, but you can't try the competition problems until then.
We're hosting a GB National Development Squad training day on Saturday 23rd March.
The athletes ranging from Junior to Youth C will be participating in finals simulations on the Rab Competition Wall & in Unit E from around 10:30 to 12:00, then from 12:30 to 15:30 they'll be projecting the blocs from the simulated finals as well as participating in workshops on the wall and in the training area. The Climbing Works will be open, but specific areas may be closed while competition simulations and workshops are taking place.
