Biggest event ever in the UK?!

Hi all,

Well, what a way to kick of Blokfest season 5. Our 21st Blokfest event and the highest turn out we have ever had. Ever! Ever! Over 500 climbers.  It's event we also launched our new electronic scoring system with Vertical Life. This allowed for live qualifying round scores for every single person which was really cool!
safe to say it was frantic and is was really fun with some great psyche in the room. At the Mile End

A great show in all in categories with some big scores. Check them out contest.vertical-life.info. It's safe to say the youth are getting strong!!!

Finals saw an incredibly explosive and tight battle with Gracie Martin and Matt Cousins eventually taking away the gold medals at the end of a huge night of action. Check out the finals scores below.
