We are so pleased to announce our first event of 2015!

On Thursday 29th January from 3pm we will be holding another one of our fantastic and always fun, Social and Climbing Competition events. This time we are moving back to a Thursday evening, lots of climbers in Bristol were asking for it and we listened.

Our climbing competitions, if you have not been before, are always aimed at the majority of climbers, meaning that the majority of climbs within the competition are below 6b+ (blue circuit and below), that being said, we need to split those top guys and girls so there are always 5 or 6 tough blocks for them to go head to head on.

All the problems will be set specifically for the competition and will as always be fun and tricky all at the same time. Be prepared to be puzzled!


The qualification round for the climbing competition starts at 3pm and finishes at 8pm, with the final set for 9pm.

We will be having 3 men and 3 women in the final. The finals are always exciting to watch, with some of the best climbers in the UK living in Bristol and many climbers travelling to Bristol just for our competitions, the standard is set to be very high indeed.

Each event brings many people in to watch the final, even if they have not climbed through the event. If you do not have the time to enter the qualification or just fancy a good free show then swing by Bloc and 9pm to shout on the competitors.

Professional photographer, Dan Habershon-Butcher, will be in capturing amazing individual shots, which will be available to purchase after the event.


First Competition?

We cannot express enough how fun and friendly the competitions are at Bloc, we have staff on hand through all our events to offer help and advice to you all while you are climbing. You might even see us sneak on our boots while you are climbing and offering a few demonstrations.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate contact us.
