Announcing a new competition starting today on UKC.

Each weekday between now and March 11th I'll post two questions on this thread (a general-climbing-knowledge one and a ShAFF-related one). Email the answers to and a winner will be chosen from the correct entries at the end of the day. The winner will receive a ticket to a screening of their choice at ShAFF. That's 11 tickets in total. Win them all and you'll be able to take in most of the festival!

Reply to this thread with a key-word and I'll do my best to adapt the following day's general-climbing-knowledge question to the key-word!

I'll post the winner's details and the correct answers here the morning after each set of questions has been posted.

Enjoy and good luck.
