Bloc Climbing Bristol Saturday 6th

 
 
Hi all,
 
 
We are getting close now to event 4/5 at the awesome Bloc Climbing Centre in Bristol. This is a BIG deal for us so we would be so psyched to have a huge day and make a seriously big scene from 9am until the end of the finals in the evening. We have some awesome stuff lined up alongside the crazy 25 bloc tour including a hilarious Special challenge based around some shipping equipment! We also have a great line up of live DJ's who will be playing for you all day.
Bloc is huge so we will be making the most of there awesome angles and spreading the blocs out far and wide to best use the space and reduce queuing. For those who haven't been before do not forget you get a hand printed Blokfest T-shirt or sporty vest with your entry and loads and loads of problems of all ability levels you will be able to do.  You can find out more by watching the videos on the right of previous rounds and on the Info page. You can pre-register if you like also here and its £15 or £20 on the day in cash.
 
See you soon.
 
Extra Psyched Team Blokfest

Blokfest #3 Mile End

Hi all,

Just a quickie to say in a high pitch over excited squeaky voice "O.M.G" Mile End event was flippin awesome! A huge thanks to everyone who attended throughout the day and our amazing sponsors who helped create such a great day out. After some seriously inspirational stuff (check out our Twitter and FB pages for pics) in the junior and senior qualification rounds the big guns got to flex in an awe-inspiring finals where the GB team came into their own to crush the finals with some local Blokfest heroes giving them a serious run for their money. It was great scenes and we look forward to the highlights film from Volo Digital coming out soon.

We can now bring you this frankly awesome set of photos of the whole day from Rockas Juozapavicius.

We are now working on the mass data entry and results will be out as soon as we can but please remember we have to go to work with our normal jobs to so it takes a bit of time.

The next event is at Bloc Bristol and if any event is a must attend it has to be this one. A huge bouldering only venue with great walls and a BIG comp wall. Its going to be seriously good so start making plans now for Feb 6th and Blokfest #4

Check back soon for the results.
