Spectators for this event will be able to watch the event for free. The weekend of the competition is also the culmination of the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival (SHAFF) and so there will be many other activities for visiting climbers to do, and a load of good new climbing films to watch. Detail on the ShAFF website. The other main attraction for attending this competition will be hosted climbing in the Peak District. Many of Sheffield?s local climbers will be on hand to give guided tours of the local gritstone climbing to visiting boulderers. MORE DETAILS: www.climbingworks.com
