New Purple Circuit & Cliffhanger Info

11 Jun 2010 12:52

Percy and Sam have finished off the Purple Spotty's today with 40 brand new problems in the 6a to 6b range. The 20 or so that were set yesterday already got a good hammering last night so it's going to be a popular circuit. We'll have a video on Monday of some of the new circuit.

As the football World Cup kick's off today it seems only right to remind you about another World Cup (round) which is taking place closer to home. On the first weekend of July, Cliffhanger is taking place with the highlight being the Bouldering World Cup which will take place on the Saturday (qualifiers) and Sunday (finals). The Climbing Works is sponsoring the event and will be CLOSED allday Saturday 3rd July, re-opening Sunday 4th July at 2pm. We're acting as an 'isolation and warmup' for the 200 or so competitors so that's why we will be closed. This event is attracting some of the best competition climbers in the World so make sure not to miss out.

We're also taking care of the after-party which will be held on the Sunday night at the 'Big Shake-Out' which is a short walk from the event.

The weekend before (26th / 27th June), Millhouses Park will play host to the British Bouldering Championships. Last years event was a thrilling affair with both the Men's and Women's competition coming down to the final problem. You can watch Ned Feehally on his way to victory in the video below:
