[Leah Crane, Women's Winner. © Keith Sharples, 4 kb]Over a hundred climbers have registered for this year's BMC British Bouldering Championships to be held this weekend in Millhouses Park, Abbeydale, Sheffield.

The BBC's are over two days and are being held in the same marquee and competition wall as the following weekend's IFSC Bouldering World Cup being held at the Cliffhanger Festival.

In reply to Guy Atkinson:

Agreed. I know that on my part, the championships at Cliffhanger overshadowed ( by more active publiclity) this competition. That they are taking place a week apart from each other in the same location, has admittedly confused me as a mere casual observer of what's going on. When I see something mentioning "bouldering comp at Sheffield in July", I think "Cliffhanger".

In reply to UKC News: hang on, so was it the BBC's at Cliffhanger last year but this year they're stepping it up the World Cup?

I wonder how England vs Germany and the good weather will affect the BBC attendance?

It has been publicised both at the BMC website and at UKClimbing.com, prior to this news item.

Also check out the excellent BMC Comp mag, Psyched! were it was publicised.

I first reported on the BBC's in May
