Capital Climbing Festival

The Capital Climbing Festival is a weekend celebration of climbing in the capital, hosted by London?s three main walls- The Castle Climbing Centre, The Westway and Mile End Climbing Wall- and supported by prAna.The Festival is centred around the prAna Triple Challenge – a competition in which the best climbers in the country will be competing for BIG cash prizes. With £1000 for first place and prizes down to 5th place – this will be the biggest competition in the country.  However, this will be far more than a competition. There will be a number of events at each venue for children and adults, complete beginners to experienced climbers. Complete beginners can have a go at climbing or abseiling or spend time learning new skills, receiving a massage or practising yoga in the prAna room. This is the first event of its kind and we don?t want you to miss it.When and where is the Festival?Saturday, 11 March 2006 from 10 am to 7 pm The Westway Sports Centre: 1 Crowthorne Road, London, W10 6RP Nearest Tube: Latimer Road Phone: 020 8969 0992 Mile End Climbing Wall: Haverfield Road, Bow, London, E3 5BE Nearest Tube: Mile End Phone: 020 8980 0289 Sunday, 12 March 2006 from 10 am to 7 pm The Castle Climbing Centre: Green Lanes, Stoke Newington, London, N4 2HA Nearest Tube: Manor House Phone: 020 8211 7000 The prAna Triple Challenge will showcase the best climbing talent from Britain and abroad competing in different disciplines.  Round 1 will be a flashed bouldering competition (3 attempts format) on Saturday morning at Mile End.
