Highball Climbing Norwich
We created the [TBC] Comp series to cater for the majority of people who use our centre – those climbing up to Font 6b. It’s a fun competition for all ages, perfect for people who are relatively new to climbing or those who don’t take it too seriously – but still like a challenge! It runs bimonthly (Usually from 6:30pm) and is a great way to measure your progress – just compare your score from the previous event – and also pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses, helping you to focus your training in a positive way – if that’s what you want to do. The Highball Crew will set 30 problems around the centre, graded from font 3 to 6b (our circuits 0-3), and you have up to 3 hours to complete as many as you can. Scorecards are just £2 and each Comp has an opportunity for cash prizes and sometimes giveaways from sponsors too. Of course, you could just enter for the fun, it’s a really great social event!

COMPETITION CLIMBING LIVE ON TV – UK FIRST
At 6pm on 13 October, The Big Flash will make history when the Flash Championship Grand Final is broadcast live on Freesports – a free to view digital channel.
‘For the last 5 years we’ve streamed the Grand Final live online but this year, thanks to Freesports and 247.tv, we’re extremely proud to be trailblazing UK Competition Climbing onto mainstream commercial television’.
We’ve had to make a few tweaks to the format to accommodate commercials, but we’re really pleased to be able to keep the 4plus format for a live TV event. It really is groundbreaking stuff.’
