BMC Open Youth Event - 7th Dec

12 Nov 2013 11:00

On the 7th December, The Climbing Works is proud to be hosting the BMC Open Youth event. This is a fun but competitive event for those Under-18 climbers looking to perform at a national level. You can read more about the event on the BMC website here>>

As this will be a popular, and serious, competition there will be wall closures on the day for our normal customers. As a supporter towards the future elite of British competition climbers we know there will be disruption to our regular customers if you come down to the Climbing Works that day. As such, we will be offering our off-peak rate all-day at both centres throughout the Saturday. This is a good chance to climb at the Mini Works (with circuits up to Murple grade there is something hard for everyone to do there) but we recommend visiting the Foundry if you want to climb without U18's around.
On the Sunday the Youth event moves to the Foundry for the lead event so we will be back to normal then.

Wall Closures: Sat 7th December:
There will be a qualification round that will take place in the part of the Climbing Works that starts at the Cheese door / end of kids wall and goes towards the Berghaus competition wall. This takes in the main slab, wall opposite the campus board and the inner room. This area will be closed from 10am to 2pm.
The Berghaus Competition wall (and Motherboard) will be CLOSED ALLDAY.
The new wall in the back corner will be closed for isolation purposes for the athletes from 2pm onwards.

Thanks for your understanding and patience as we support the future stars of British climbing.
