The Big Rock Youth Climbing Comp is back, taking place on Friday 22nd November at Big Rock Bond in Bletchley. This hugely popular bi-annual top-rope and bouldering competition is a friendly all-inclusive event, giving young climbers the opportunity to test their climbing ability in a low pressure, fun atmosphere and enjoy being part of something bigger than a regular climbing session. Everyone taking part will come away with more climbing experience and most of all we reckon you’ll have an awesome time!

The Comp is open to all climbers born in 2002 and later (see age categories below) and although all entrants must have some climbing experience, it doesn’t matter whether you have just started out with climbing, or if you are a seasoned climbing pro. Taking part is a great way to push yourself to climb to the best of your ability and share your experiences with other young climbers.
