Marmot Masters Friday Night Series Bouldering Competition
Competition Number Three
The third of the Marmot Masters Friday Bouldering Competitions will be held on this coming Friday, the 7th February. This will be the third competition in the series and will be followed by the Grand Final and party day held on Saturday 22 March 2014.
There will be two levels to the comp, Premier level with problems up to V5 and the Elite level with problems up to V8 (with a couple of stoppers no doubt!). There will also be a junior competition for 14 – 16 year olds, a men’s and women’s comp and of course a Vets comp, over 50. All this kicks off at 5pm and you will have until 9pm on the evening to finish all the problems. There will be the standard 20 problem circuit of increasing difficulty, a stamina problem on the circuit board, a stamina problem on our routing roof and if that’s not enough a speed route on the routing roof – all of these will count towards your points and as we know points make prizes.
For the Marmot Masters Friday Night Series we will have a selection of prizes from Beal, La Sportiva, Petzl and of course our headline sponsor Marmot.
These competitions will be ideal for the hardened boulderer or those wanting a fun evening out – or both! We will be having our world class in-house setters and guest setting from Marmot and La Sportiva athletes as well as a guest DJ on the Marmot Loft Prow. Soup and sandwiches will be available in the cafe at 5pm and later there will be beer to help you celebrate your fantastic performance (or drown your sorrows!)
As a further encouragement to this fantastic series of competitions the wall entry fee will be reduced to £7.50 (normally £9.00) on the night.
The results from the Marmot Masters Friday Night Series will be added to our Grand Day In Bouldering competition on 22 March 2014. This fantastic day will be an all-day event ending in a lecture from the one and only Neil Gresham. This will be no ordinary day - we will be holding a number of events to test your metal against the plastic!
