announcement by Marmot
After a successful inaugural season, Blokfest is back and it is bigger and better than ever.
At Marmot we are delighted to announce, in cooperation with DMM, that we will be the title sponsors of the biggest and best series of boulder festivals ever.
Five massive events bring climbers young and old together to enjoy the special Blokfest challenges, with blocs created by some of the UK’s best setters. The always entertaining and fun Blokfest ‘special boulders’ give everyone an opportunity to walk away with a prize from one of the many fantastic round sponsors.
The main event consists of 25 boulders with categories for Male, Female, Boys, Girls and Veterans. Each festival will culminate with a chance to shine, with the top six male and female climbers competing in the spectacular Blokfest final, with cash prizes for podium places.
This is the showcase for many GB Bouldering team members, and gives everyone the opportunity to test their mettle against Britain’s best and with musical support from the Blokfest DJ’s it is certain to be a spectacular and fun day for all.

20th October 2013 – Mile End, London
