At 30 and 31 August one of the biggest artificial boulder events of the world will take place on a unique location. Right on the beach of Scheveningen, the Netherlands, numerous blocks will be build especially for the event BAZ! (Boulderen Aan Zee) that will host more then 500 participating climbers from all over the world.
BAZ! is no ordinary bouldering event, but can better be described as a bouldering festival. The two days program consists of a competition for boulderers of all levels ending in a spectacular final, a youth competition, a recreational bouldering day, boulderclinics and many performances by DJ's, hiphopcrews, dancers and more. Also, a few world famous climbers are expected to participate in the event.
BAZ! 2008 is organised by the BAZ! foundation and their volunteers and will be the third edition since 2005. BAZ! is getting bigger and bigger every year. The 2008 edition is recognised as International Promotional Event by the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC).
BAZ! 2008 is supported by the Dutch Climbing and Mountaineering Club (NKBV)
