The Final fun event and Live scores for overall. BOOM!!!



Hi all,

SO close now to the final event of the season. To be honest although extremely tiring we will be sad when its over! However - we have to work late nights once again in preparation for the event on Saturday at the Castle. It will really be a mega day for everyone and we hope you can all make the trip to the Castle to get amongst the fun. 

For now, we can bring you the link for Live Overall results for Best of 4 scores! These league of scores will be LIVE all day at the final event alongside the Castle round scores. https://contest.vertical-life.info/blokfest/overall 

It would be great to see everyone on Saturday and bring your freinds as its going to be great fun. 

Oh and did we mention if you break the record on the Zlag Board comp you can win €1500!!!!

4 Down 1 to GO

Hi all,

They say "leave the best until last" but at Blokfest we find that hard as every event is so much fun! The 4th round at the Westway certainly proved that and the day was totally awesome from start to finish. A huge thanks to the Westway crew for putting up a great venue and their future looks really bright with lots of new developments. A BIG UP to everyone who came along and climbed and of course to the super crushers who won in the Juniors/ Masters and in the Senior the finals - Jennifer Wood and Matt Cousins. All the results from qualifiers can be seen on the scoring website. www.contest.vertical-life.info.

Now we have only 1 event left and hopefully, we are leaving the best until last at the Castle. A huge venue with tonnes of space for everyone, with more individual blocs set, the official Zlag Board comp coming over from Italy, live tunes all day, Licensed Bar and lots of fun for everyone no matter what your ability is.

Check out round 4 highlights on the right and see you at the Castle on Saturday March 4th.

Cheers
Team Blokfest

Boom Blokfest round 2 - smash hit!

Hey guys,

Just a quick post to say WOW what an awesome day yesterday and a huge thanks to everyone who took part and got amongst it. We had around 450 climbers in total battling out on a "tricky" tour of blocs and everyone from the youngest Youth C climber in the mornings all the way through to the Masters in the afternoon/ evening climbed so well, tried hard and most importantly had fun.

Results for the day can be seen via this link here. https://contest.vertical-life.info/events/blokfest-2-boulder-brighton
Finals results below.

Special thanks to the brands and people who helped make this event possible and Boulder Brighton for providing an awesome venue and amazing coffee!

Round 2 - Boulder Brighton

Hi guys,

On Saturday 10th December we will be at the awesome Boulder Brighton for event 2 and we are SUPER PSYCHED for this one. It's safe to say Brighton never disappoints if years past have anything to go by. 

Remember "that move" in finals for the men and Alice Hafers incredible effort in the women's? Check it out below. 


Anyway, it's an awesome wall with one of the best comp walls around. 
Loads of sponsors stalls, live music, EpicTv on sight and some super funky boulders for everyone to try. 
Get amongst it and see you there!
