The Crucible is our bouldering competition that runs twice a year during the summer and winter.
The bouldering competition is held over 9-days and gives climbers the opportunity to work the problems.
It’s simple: There's 30 problems to work over 9-days. 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; there should be something for everyone to attempt with with grades starting from 'easy', all the way to 'V Ninja'!
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.
