We will also be having a party in the evening after Neil's lecture (included in the price of the ticket), which is a great oppurtunity to relax and meet some other climbers! Tickets for the day are now are now available to book over the phone or in person here at the centre. Prebooking is advisable, particularly if you want to attend the lecture in the evening, as spaces are limited.
A full schedule of the day can be found here.
The day will also include:
Speed Climbing Comp
Kids Top Rope Comp
Climb El Cap Team Speed Challenge (register now for this event!)
Discounts in the Shop
Party in the Evening (we're licensed to find a designated driver if you fancy a post climbing beer!)
Neil Gresham Coaching Sessions:
Neil Gresham is Britains most experienced climbing coach and one of our most well known all round climbers. Having redpointed french 8b+, headpointed E10 7a, placed in the top 10 in the ice world cup and established one of Britains hardest deep water solo's (Cutlass 8a+ at Berry Head) he is certainly the man in the know. As part of our Birthday Bash Neil will be here delivering:
- Individual 30 minute coaching sessions - £30
- Movement Masterclass - £30
- An evening lecture and slideshow - Included in the price of the ticket (Tickets just for the lecture are £5)
Spaces for each of the above are extremely limited and prebooking is essential.
Prizes - The competition is being sponsored by Evolv, Metolius, Wild Country, Red Chilli, and Lyon equipment, with the prize pool now being worth over £600.
Bouldering comp - There will be a bouldering competition running all day. The format will be the same as the winter bouldering league, (get a score card from reception and mark down your attempts yourself). There will be 30 problems in total and will range from very easy to very hard so there will be something for everyone. If you are asking yourself "should I enter, will I be able to do any of the problems?", then the answer is yes you should and yes you will!
Dyno comp - For those that don't know what a dyno is its basically the climbing equivalent of the high jump. Two big starting hand holds, two big starting footholds, and a big finishing jug that get moved progressively further away. Chris Davies holds the current Pinnacle dyno record, come and see if you can beat it!
Speed climbing comp - One very easy route on a vertical wall, climbed on top rope its a race to the top. Fastest time wins. Simple. Try and beat last years time of a staggering sub 8 seconds!
Raffle routes - Basically a raffle but you have to climb routes to get your tickets.
Climb El Cap Team Speed Challenge - As a team of 4, the challenge is to climb the height of The Nose of El Cap (2900 ft). This means, as a team of 4 you will have to complete 96 routes in the fastest possible time! The current record for 2 people on The Nose is held by Dean Potter and Sean Leary at a time of 2:36:45 , so if anyone gets close with a team of 4 we will be mighty impressed!!!
Kids Top Rope Comp - There will be a junior climbing comp. The routes will be top rope only and there will be categories for complete beginners.
All in all its set to be a fantastic event, so come and join us and help us celebrate our special day! Tickets are available for prebooking, so please phone us on 01604 875 996 to reserve your place, or pop in to the centre.
All the best,
The Team At The Pinnacle
