BMC Open Youth Event - 7th Dec

6 Dec 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 different parts of the Climbing Works. There will one half of the circuit walls closed from 10am-11.30 (skips, Adidas wall, reception wall area) and then the opposite side (2nd room, main slab, wall opposite fingerboards) from 11.30am-2pm. Pease ask the staff for updates if you are visiting.

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.
