Women's Climbing Evening
We are very excited to announce that on the 3rd January 7-8:30pm we will be running a women's climbing session here at The Climbing Works.
These sessions are for anyone who identifies as a female to climb together, exchange beta, training tips and generally support each other while climbing. This is also an exciting way to get strong whilst having fun and making new friends! This is not about excluding men, but about supporting women in an environment that can at times, feel intimidating. Our aims are to breaking down barriers, support one another and have fun getting fit together.
All ages and abilities welcome!
The class is FREE you will just need to pay at the desk for your entrance fee.
If you have never climbed before and would love to try it with some of our female coaches please book out to our Women's Climbing Evening Induction here
BIFF Grand Final 2020!
The Beastmaker International Footless Festival (BIFF) returns to The Climbing Works on Saturday 25th January 2020. This year it is the Final of Tour de BIFF where qualification rounds were held at The Climbing Hanger & The Castle.
The 6th year of BIFF at The Climbing Works aims to be bigger, with fewer feet and even more silly than the rest. Beastmaker are planning a very special evening that will be great to compete in and a great evening to watch.
6.30pm Competitor registration opens
7pm Wall closes to the public and non-competitors have to vacate the building so spectators can be let back in
7.30 - 9.30pm Main Competition
10pm Competition Final
11pm-ish The end!
Being that this is the final of the Tour de BIFF, anyone wanting to compete in the final will have needed to qualify by having been in the top 10 at last years BIFF Final (held at the Climbing Works in Jan 2019) or top 10 in either of this years 2 Tour de BIFF rounds which took place at the Castle in London or at the Climbing Hanger Liverpool on 14th December. Beastmaker also reserve the right to invite some wild cards, so if you missed the Tour rounds but are obscenely strong it may be worth getting in touch with them!
You'll need to pay your normal entry fee for the wall (we'd recommend coming in a bit early to warm up really well) and donate £10 to CAC (bring cash for this please!) when you sign in for the comp from 6.30pm. Qualifying competitors will be contacted nearer the event to pre-register to save time on the day.
The footless blocs will be even harder this year to make for better watching, hence the need for qualifications. No-one likes entering what they they was going to be a fun comp only to find they can't get off the ground!
BIFF is a very silly comp without the use of feet, so competitors must be over 16.
This event is for you guys! Due to limited space this is a ticketed event for spectators - all proceeds from this will go to CAC. Spectator tickets were £5 but are now SOLD OUT. If you missed on tickets but to watch as it happens then make sure to watch the live stream below!
We'll have hot food available along with beers, mulled wine & our usual hot & cold drinks & snacks and you'll be able to watch plenty of strong people doing stupid and impressive stuff without any feet. Heckling is encouraged and will be spurred on by live commentary.
Some Most spectators will be drinking beer and Percy could say almost anything while he's commentating (we haven't got his filter working yet...), so this event isn't suitable for children!
