24 Mar 2017 Sheffield Varsity 2017 - Wednesday 29th March


As part of the Sheffield Universities Varsity sports events we are hosting Varsity Climbing on Wednesday 29th March.

Competitors from The University of Sheffield & Sheffield Hallam University will be competing on a 25 problem qualification circuit from 12 noon, with the top 4 male & female competitors battling it out for top spot in the Finals on the Berghaus Competition Wall at 3.30pm.

We'll probably be a bit busier than usual on a Wednesday afternoon & the Berghaus Competition Wall will be out of action for the finals!
