Sheffield Schools Bouldering Competition 2019

 

This annual competition is the highlight climbing event for all Sheffield schools. It is run a The Mini Works in conjunction with the Links School Sports Partnership and Thornbridge Outdoors.

The Sheffield Schools Bouldering Competition is not all about the competing and winning, for many it is about participation, fun and experiencing a new activity.

Most teams are made up of pupils that have very little or no previous climbing experience
