OPENS 16th OCTOBER 2017
GB Climbing Development Squad Event – 5th November – The Hub will be closed to the public on this day.
Located inside Rock Over Climbing’s massive multi-activity complex, The Hub is host to the UK’s first and only dedicated GB Climbing Team Bouldering Wall – a 26m long, full-height competition bouldering wall, with World-Cup style (and difficulty) problems set for adults and juniors. With the setting managed by IFSC Chief Routesetter Jamie Cassidy, GB Climbing Team members will be free to use the facilities to test themselves against the hardest climbs the world has to offer.
The Hub will also be open to members of Rock Over Climbing*, to test themselves against the elite, or train to enter the GB Climbing Team, at no extra cost (just pay entry to our whole facility) whilst also hosting a huge range of classes from the amazing Fera – www.wearefera.com. Opening times will work around the classes on offer, and are detailed below.
Regular setting will ensure that weaknesses are worked on and the GB Climbing Team can take themselves to new highs over the coming years, whether in European competitions, World Cups/Championships or the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
- 8 Seniors World cup difficulty – finals problems
- 8 Juniors European/World cup difficulty – a mix of semi’s and finals problems
***Setting this week***
- 4 – 6 Juniors problems
The full regular setting schedule will be released soon (please note, there may not always be junior problems on the wall). The initial sets will be as follows:
16th October – Grand opening with a full world cup level set
2nd & 3rd November – Resetting for Development squad training
6th November – Senior problems reset
A full regular setting schedule will be available here after the initial opening phase!
Here at Rock Over Climbing we are proud to sponsor the GB Climbing Team with a truly World-Class facility, and would like to thank Serious Climbing, Hanson Plywood, Eveque, Anthony Axford and Astley Hire for donating the materials, time and expertise to help make this project a reality.
