© The Climbing Works

The famous Climbing Works International Festival bouldering competition is back!

A weekend jampacked with climbing, good food, discounted outdoor kit, talks from famous climbers and adventure film screenings.

Just £10 to enter and the chance to climb alongside some of the best climbers in the world on problems set by some of the world's best route setters. You don't just come to watch, you come to take part. The Rab CWIF 2022 will be held over 2 days giving you a competition that will push the competitors to the limit. It's open to every climber that wants to come and have fun. 

There will also be talks, adventure film screening, discounted gear and much more.



The first part of the competition will be a circuit of 30 flash problems. All these problems will be split between the main 'circuit area' of The Climbing Works, the Rab Competition Wall & Unit E. The circuit is the more informal part of the weekend with the scores being predominantly self-marked with the problems starting off relatively easy (Font 5+/6a) and getting very hard at the upper end.

This part of the day also includes a team competition (4 people of mixed gender) with the highest team score winning £1000! You don't have to be part of a team, but it makes it a more fun day climbing with your friends.

The highest individual scores from the circuit part of the competition qualified for an on-sight semi-final and final on the Competition Wall. 



The Semi-Finals will take place on the Rab Competition Wall in an IFSC senior bouldering World Cup semi-final format; with the top 20 female & male competitors challenging themselves on 4 set problems. These problems will be judged independently. The 6 highest female & male scores will progress to the finals.


The big final will again take place on the Rab Competition Wall with the whole wall being reset between the Semis & Finals. Here the top 6 from the Semi Finals will compete on 4 women's & 4 men's problems to decide The Rab CWIF 2022 overall champions.

The CWIF couldn't happen without support from these great brands:

Rab, Scarpa, Securit X-Cult, Beta Setting, Axis, Lapis, Rockcity Climbing Holds, Squadra Holds, Bleastone, Sheffield Festival of the Otdoors Outdoor City, UKClimbing
