With big international names including: Alex Megos, Melissa La Neve, Mina Markovic, Gabri Moroni and Rustam Gelmanov alongside the best climbers Britain has to offer - Ned Feehally, Shauna Coxey, Dave Barrans and Mina Leslie Mujastyk (just to name a few!) - it promises to be a world-class event.
If you aren't around for the weekend itself there will be a live-feed throughout the Semis and the Final on the CWIF Website or if you are lucky to be enough to be in town then you can watch the event live for free - make sure you get down early so you've got a seat. We can guarantee it will be worth it!
The timing is as follows:
Men's and Women's Semi Final - 12pm
Men's and Women's Final - 6pm
CWIF is also raising money for CAC and the British Heart Foundation. Last year they raised over £6,000 and are aiming to beat that target this year so bring your wallet along. There will also be a FREE BBQ, giveaways from the events sponsors and a huge raffle prize for the Sunday night.
If that didn't wet your apetite then here's a film of the Highlights from 2013's CWIF.
