As part of the Alpkit Big Shakeout weekend, UKC/Rockfax are holding a Bouldering Try-out Day at the Burbage South boulders. Come and join us on Saturday 28th September from around 11am to try out a sample from the forthcoming Rockfax Peak Bouldering guide and test a crash pad from one of the major manufacturers. There are also some great prizes on offer in a prize draw including four crash pads.

Rockfax Peak Bouldering Guide Try-out

We will have the full chapters for the Burbage South Valley Boulders and the Burbage South Edge Boulders from the forthcoming Peak Bouldering Rockfax guidebook. These will be available in PDF format for downloading to your mobile device, and also there will be paper print-outs available on the day. We will be trialing our new circuit system and everyone who completes a circuit can enter the prize draw - see below.

Boulder Crash Pad Try-out

Major manufacturers will be attending on the day to showcase their crash pads. You will be able to take the pads and use them on the Burbage South Valley circuits and also talk with some of the representatives of the various brands. Already signed up we have Metolius,Snap, Alpkit, Mad Rock, Edelrid, Trangoworld, Climb X and Black Diamond.

Prize Draw

We have some great prizes to give away including four crash pads (so far) - two from Black Diamond, 1 from Mad Rock and 1 from Metolius - 10 bouldering chalk bags, some T-shirts and other goodies. To enter the prize draw all you need to do is turn up on the day and have a go at one of the Rockfax bouldering circuits.

I'd like to try out some different mats, but the article doesn't actually tell me how I can get involved. It seems to imply that anyone can just 'come along' but doesn't say exactly where to (will you be based in the boulders somewhere?) or in fact what time of day. Am I mistaken and in fact it's only for people attending the Big Shakeout? The link takes you to a website informing you it's sold out. cheers
Just turn up at 11am or after at the Burbage South boulders. It says this in the first para (although I did just add the time so thanks for pointing that out). No need for tickets or attendance at the Big Shakeout. Alan
