Blue Thursday

26 Jan 2012 10:53

Lots going on at The Climbing Works today with a new Blue circuit and the return of the FREE Clinic physio sessions tonight from 7.45pm. We've also drawn the prize winners from R3 of the Evolv Winter Bouldering League, so read below to see if you're one of the lucky winners.

The new Blue circuit is currently being set and will be finished off tomorrow giving you a new circuit for the weekend (latest topo with new blacks available here). There is a bit of a change going on though as you may have noticed that the Yellows also came down at the start of the week. Always willing to mix things up, we've decided to make the Blues* the new top end circuit. The Yellows will go up next week and fill the place of the old Blues circuit grade wise. Hopefully not too confusing for you all...
*(The Enigma is in a bit of a quiet mood this morning and has gone to set on the Masters Wall. We might as well get the apologies out of the way now - expect some thin, hard, blocs from him).

If you need a little psyche to get you motivated to climb the new blocs, check out the new trailer for bouldering film Life On Hold (sponsored by The Climbing Works). We'll be having an exciting announcement about the film in the next few weeks so keep an eye on the blog / twitter / facebook for more information.

Below are the prize winners from Round 3 of the Evolv Winter Bouldering League (results here). All the winners are selected randomly from the returned scorecards. No matter what you score, hand in your card for a chance to win some Evolv goodies:

1 x Pair of Evolv Shoes: Kiyanouche Jash
1 x Evolv Hoody: Alex Hall
1 x Evolv T-Shirt: Holly Murray
1 x Evolv Chalk-bag: Lee Parkour
1 x Evolv Chalk-bag: Lex Wilkinson

You can claim your prize from reception. Remember the final round is on Friday, Feb 17th and the overall winners will be scored from their top 3 rounds from the series. We'll also have a highlights film out for R3 in the next 2 weeks.

While we're talking about Evolv, we'll be having an Evolv boot demo with grit god and all-round good guy, Ben Bransby, next Tuesday night at The Climbing Works. This is a fantastic opportunity to put some time into finding that perfect new shoe to take your boudering to the next level.
