CWIF Registration closed early last week with all 350 spaces filled in a record time, an amazing response as we only opened registration at the start of Feb. We set a new record within the first 24 hour period having over 100 competitors signup. Some of the names on the list include Jakob Schubert (current World lead champion), Dave Barrans (current CWIF champion), Shauna Coxsey (current CWIF champion), Ned Feehally (3 times British Bouldering Champ), Alex Puccio (7 times American Bouldering Champion), Chris Webb Parsons and some Sheffield local called Ben Moon.
