We created the ‘NuKids on the Bloc’ Comp series to cater for the majority of people who use our centre – those climbing up to Font 6b. It’s a fun competition for all ages, perfect for people who are relatively new to climbing or those who don’t take it too seriously – but still like a challenge! It runs bimonthly (Usually from 6:30pm) and is a great way to measure your progress – just compare your score from the previous event – and also pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses, helping you to focus your training in a positive way – if that’s what you want to do. The Highball Crew will set 30 problems around the centre, graded from font 3 to 6b, and you have up to 3 hours to complete as many as you can. Score Cards are just £2 and each Comp has an opportunity for cash prizes and sometimes giveaways from sponsors too. Of course, you could just enter for the fun, it’s a really great social event!

If the weather’s good, we’ll fire up the wood fired pizza oven Once a year we run a NuKids Masters Weekend, which is basically a World Cup version of a NuKids Comp. It has a qualifying round and then a Grand Final for the top 20 male and females. No matter how little you climb or what you think of your ability, this is the comp for you. It’s for fun, for the experience and it doesn’t matter where you finish. Come and get involved. WHAT’S UP FOR GRABS? The 21:30 raffle is a bit of a lucky dip. It could have prizes donated by our sponsors, like chalk, chalk bags etc., and Highball normally throws in about £200 worth of prizes, like 1 month unlimited coffee, 1 month free climbing, 1:1 masterclass.
