Our corporate competition includes teams and individual climbers and will have problems to climb at all levels. The aim of the event is to try new problems (exclusive to you and your team), meet new people, get some coaching and experience a competition like the professionals!

Most importantly the aim is to have fun!

The competition is aimed at groups of you that come into Bloc or other walls with your friends from work.

Each company can enter any number of teams made up of 3 climbers.

If you have never entered a competition before do not fear! Think of it as more of a marathon or road bike race, you know there will be professionals sneaking around in the ranks, those that might stand a better chance of winning than you, but there will be a great vibe with the number of climbers around you. It’s the taking part and meeting other like minded people who you can struggle along with that makes these events brilliant.

Think of a competition as an excuse to try some funky problems, try really hard, have a laugh and as a good excuse to earn your beers afterwards.
