The results for the first round of The Crucible are in! Click here to check them out and see how well you did.
Thank you to everyone who came along to take part in the first round of The Crucible bouldering competition summer series – it was great fun! We aimed to make this first round bigger and better than ever before! On the Friday before the competition kicked off, we went about setting 30 problems that would hopefully delight and frustrate climbers. Did you think that the problems had a different feel to them than the last series? Let us know your feedback by leaving us a comment below.
Round 2 will kick off on 8th June.
The aim of The Crucible is to test Cardiff’s bouldering community, but also to be fun and provide a great reason for us all to meet up and climb together. Competitors of all ages and abilities are welcome to compete – whether you’re a V14 climbing beast, or new to the sport, each round is designed with you in mind. The categories are: adult male, adult female, junior male and junior female. Each round will run for nine days, so you have plenty of opportunity to come and try the boulder problems. We hope to see you there!
The Grand Final is planned for 7th September and to qualify you’ll have to take part in a minimum of two rounds. Vouchers from the Boulders online shop are up for grabs and the prizes aren’t limited to just the strongest climbers, as there will be recognition of improvement through the rounds, as well as fun random spot prizes.
