We run a Winter Bouldering Competition, throughout the colder months of the year

The Winter Bouldering League consists of a number of rounds that normally take place on the last Friday of the month from 18:30 to 21:30.

Each round has 30 problems – set by some of the UK’s best route setters – and are graded from a very achievable Font 5 to ‘very hard’ (this seems to be the most common grade given by route setters for anything ‘very hard’). The prize winners of each round are chosen via raffle which takes place at 9:30pm. The scoresheets which are handed in are collated and made available early the following week. Scores are mostly for personal pride and progression but, for those keen to compete and experience a world cup style final you’ll need to finish in the top 10 overall to go through to a Showpiece Grand Final on the X-CULT Comp Wall.

Bouldering Series – Grand Final

A Grand Final you say? That sounds rather grand! It is! and here’s why.

You talked – we listened. While the TBC Series has it’s own ‘Masters Weekend’ with a grand final, and the Big Flash caters for the strong national climbers– what do the local top boulderers get? 

Well here’s your answer. Each bouldering league is brought to a fitting climax where the top 10 scoring locals (Male and Female) who’ve attended a minimum of 3 out of the 4 rounds, will battle it out to be series champion.
