BMC British Bouldering Comp This Weekend

Over a hundred climbers have registered for this year's BMC British Bouldering Championships (BBC) to be held this weekend in Millhouses Park, Abbeydale, Sheffield (S7 2QQ).

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

The Junior Male and Female categories are being held on Saturday. Registration is at 8am, qualification starts at 0930 and finishes at 1400. Finals will start at 1600 and will finish at 1800. This is repeated for the Senior Male and Female categories on Sunday.

The reigning national champions are:


Senior Male: Ned Feehally
Senior Female: Leah Crane
Junior Male: Jonathan Stocking
Junior Female: Shauna Coxsey

Rob Adie the BMC's Climbing Walls & Competitions Officer told us that it is not too late to enter if you want to have a go.

If you are in the area why not drop by and give the UK's competition climbers some support.

I'm slightly surprised this wasn't mentioned a bit sooner...

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".

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? Will
