The Crucible Winter Series Returns!

The Crucible is back for another winter series! The aim of The Crucible is to test Cardiff’s bouldering community, but to be fun and provide a great reason for us all to meet up and climb together.

There are six rounds and each round runs for nine days, so you have plenty of opportunity to come and try the 30 boulder problems. The competition is self-scored and the grand final takes place after the last round.

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.

The grand final is planned for 4th April and to qualify you’ll have to take part in a minimum of two rounds. There will be two categories: those who finish with the top scores of The Crucible qualify for the ‘elite’ category and everyone else is able to enter the ‘open’ category.

And the best bit… it’s free! You just need to pay your entry to the climbing centre and there’s no additional charge for taking part.

The Crucible dates :

  • Round 1: 4th October – 12th October
  • Round 2: 1st November – 9th November
  • Round 3: 6th December – 14th December
  • Round 4: 3rd January – 11th January
