SLABFEST 2017

SLABFEST 2017

AKA the Brighton Ultimate Footwork Festival

Join us for an evening of fancy footwork and slab-based fun, with a set of exciting new problems and challenges across a broad range of grades, featuring:

  • Setting from slab legend Johnny Dawes & the BB Crew
  • Exclusive prizes for the evening's Slab Masters
  • Prize draw for free climbing memberships
  • Boot demos from Boreal and Evolv
  • Venezuelan street food & a licenced bar
  • Special challenges, DJ Shreddie, freebies!

Here's a bit more on the format: Our plan is to set 15 climbs using all the slabs and vertical walls at BB, spread across a range of grades. You'll each get a tick sheet, but unlike most normal comps no-one will be counting attempts - we just want to know if you can get to the top (or the bonus hold). This should make it a bit less stressful, and also reduce wait times for the blocs.

At the end of the night, the male and female climbers who have ticked the most blocs will win a soon-to-be-highly-coveted SLABFEST MASTER t-shirt, as pictured here.

We've got lots of other tasty prizes which everyone else will get a chance to win, too.

There will be Evolv and Boreal boot demos so you can try out some of the latest climbing shoe designs, and slab legend Johnny Dawes himself will be around to share his pearls of wisdom. Plus a bar, Venezuelan street food, some fun extra challenges and plenty to keep everyone entertained through the night.

Cost: Normal entry fees only, no booking required

AKA the Brighton Ultimate Footwork Festival - leave your guns at the door... ;)
