CWIF Testing Begins plus Important Points for Everyone Competing

19 Mar 2010 11:43

The semi's & main final problems have been set with a big blue tarp covering the Berghaus competition wall - all set for unveiling tomorrow at 4pm.

This morning the routesetters have been busy drinking coffee and playing with a lot of pink holds. Out of this will come the 30 problem qualification circuit. For those competing you can expect....a lot of interesting conundrums.

Where will this beautiful thing end up??

Tomorrow we will have the wall open nice and early for those who are seeking to get to the Semi's having plenty of time to climb. If you're in just for the fun of it please come down a little later so we don't have everyone climbing on top of each other.
The timetable for the day can be viewed here>>

Other things to remember:
- Please try to walk here if you can as the carpark will be busy.
- There will be very limited space in here for bags etc... so take as little as you can, or if in a car, leave your stuff there.
- Part of the wall nearest the competition wall will be shut at 3 / 3.30ish so we can get the seating sorted for the Semi's & Finals
- Remember, if not in Sheffield you can watch the Semi's & Finals via webcast on


Q. How many routesetters does it take to change a hold? A. 2 IFSC setters & Britain's Manliest Man

The wall is open as normal today (Friday) but obviously the competition wall is closed and please please do not climb on the pink holds. We would like them as clean as possible for tomorrow. Any competitors found to be climbing on them today will have very nasty things done to them.
