The festival combines the final events of both our Winter Bouldering League and new Elevate climbing competition.

Athletes Jim Pope and Ben Bransby will be on hand representing the competition sponsors La Sportiva and DMM. There will be a host of great prizes not only for the overall winners, but on-the-spot events throughout the weekend so it's going to be a great weekend whether you have taken part in the competitions so far, or are coming along for the first time.

Pete Whittaker will be joining the festivities on Saturday, giving a great lecture on his solo climb of El Capitan, Yosemite.

Sunday evening's entertainment is a selection of climbing films from our sponsors DMM and La Sportiva; a great chilled end to a busy few days.

We hope you can join us, we look forward to welcoming you!!!
