Hi all,

So Blokfest in Bristol was insanely Awesome!

Our first visit to the Bloc Climbing centre and I hope you all agree it didn't disappoint. The day surpassed all our expectations and we had a huge crowd turnout for finals which made for a nail biting finale to end an extraordinary day in Bristol. Attendance matched the London venues and we thank each and every one of you for making the journey and getting amongst it.

A huge thank you also to our round sponsors 5:10 and the series partners;
