Competition Time ! – Thursday 18/9/14

On Thursday the 18 of September we are once again getting everyone together for a social and competition.

With the winter coming on fast, now is the time to start training and catching up with old friends or even making new ones. The competitions at Bloc are an easy way to do all 3!

The competition is open to everyone of all ages and abilities and opens at 3pm.

If you have never entered a competition before now is the time, its only for fun, there will be some great problems and a great vibe with lots of help from our staff throughout the event and if you are superstar boulderer then we will be having our normal uber high quality blocks for you to crank on.

Even if you still not convinced about entering a competition the Final at 9pm is always great for spectators, even turning up just for that and a few beer is well worth it. Come and watch the strongest climbers around going at it head to head, always good to top of the level of psyche for the winter training.

Come along to the competition on the 18th from 3pm for a guaranteed great evening

We will also be having  delicious sourdough pizzas, freshly made and cooked on-site in a clay oven on the day, now there is no excuse for not coming along!

The whole centre will be open as normal to everyone so those not wishing to enter the competition can still get the standard training session in
