Entre-Prise & BMC Festival Of Climbing Can´t wait till the Commonwealth Games for some gripping sportingcompetition? then help is at hand.The biggest event in the UK climbingcalendar is taking place in just 5 weeks time at the NIA in Birmingham.From 7-9 December the best climbers in the world will gather together tocompete on a spectacular indoor climbing wall on routes set by 1998-2000European champion Ian Vickers.Designed to make sure only one climber makesit to the top, British stars will climb alongside the best from all over theworld in the Snow + Rock International Masters.High drama follows as somemake it to the top- and some loose their grip on the wall and thecompetition. If power, pure muscle and flawless technique are more your thing, then theBouldering World Cup Final is definitely for you.Boulders may only be 4mhigh, but to defy gravity and scale them using muscle power alone issomething few manage successfully.Spectators will be only a few feet awayfrom some of the fittest athletes in the world making this an intimatecompetition not to be missed. And if you think this is just for the grown-ups, think again.British kidscatch the climbing bug as young as 6, and the European Youth Cup Finalbrings the elite together.Climbers aged 13-19 will be climbing on the same14m wall as the seniors, stunning audiences with their skill, poise anddetermination.
