THE BIG HOLD UP
If you're attending The ABC Conference next week and you want to see climbing holds and routesetting back on the agenda, then come over to The Climbing Works & join our special event, The Big Hold Up.
Following up from the masterclasses, we have The Big Hold Up; our very own innovative spin on a tradeshow. Where you can try and test the latest blocs put up by routesetting legends: Jacky Godoffe & Percy Bishton.
All the latest holds from the IFSC top brands that will feature in the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, most are so new that they have never been seen in The UK, however you may have seen many of these in the latest World Climbing Championship in Bern last month. We literally took some of them straight off the competition wall and brought them to this event.
*Scheduled to run at the same time as The ABC Conference to make your trip more worth your while.
The headlining event of our Set'tember route setting festival; we're back on topic. Bringing climbing holds, routesetting and movement back into the spotlight of our industry.
To finish this event-packed month of setting, we have our headline event; joined by Shauna Coxsey MBE, as she hosts another industry insider event, TALL TALES. The Life of an IFSC Route Setter, featuring two of the greatest names in Route Setting, Jacky Godoffe and Percy Bishton. Our guest speakers share the stage, a beer and some banter as they spill the beans on life behind the scenes setting World Cups and the Olympic Games and also the crazy 180 metre Verzasca Dam featured in the RED BULL DUAL ASCENT.
