Aim of the Event
To run an exciting competition for all abilities, bringing climbers from a variety of companies together. To give the taste of competition climbing to many boulderers most of whom have probably never entered a competition before.
Most importantly the aim is to have fun!
If you have never entered a competition before do not fear! Think of it 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 you’re excited by the amount of people around you and the vibe of the crowd, it’s the taking part and meeting other like minded people who you can struggle along with that makes these events.
Think of a competition as an excuse to try some funky problems, try really really hard, have a laugh and have a good excuse for a beer afterwards.
