A Busy Week of Setting
After the easy blue circuit last week, we'll be setting a new purple circuit (old one got stripped this morning) on Thursday. This will be in a similar grade range as before.
Also getting a bit of a change is the circuit board. Sam, this morning, has stripped 2 of the circuits on the board (the yellow purple spotty c.7b+ & the easy Orange circuit). These will be replaced on Wednesday by guest setter, and local hard core Sheffield resident, Steve McClure. These 2 circuits will likely come in around the mid F7 and mid F8 grade. Something for the stamina wads to get their teeth into.
We opened The CWIF registration 10 days ago and we've already had a great response with 62 entries 6 weeks before the competition. Get yourself signed up today>> The same weekend as The CWIF is ShAFF. Check out the ShAFF website for the full film schedule and the list of events rolling up to the weekend. You can see trailers everyday including the one below for Crachoholic, a Swedish trad climbing film:
To get some training in for The CWIF, we've got the 4th & final round of the Winter Bouldering League (supported by FiveTen) taking place on Friday 4th February. This will be the last ever competition on the old Berghaus Competition wall with the problems only being up for 4 days before the whole wall comes down on the 9th Feb. This final round will have a Women's cash prize of £375 attached to it as no female has completed it in the last 2 rounds (get training ladies!!).
A little later than normal, but below you can see the highlights film from round 2 of the Winter Bouldering League. You can see the scores from this round on our website. Time to build the psyche...
