We have formatted this year’s competition to help make the event fun for kids and easy for their parents and teachers – all with an ethos that encourages participation and team work.
This event is designed for both complete beginners looking to try something adventurous and for experienced youth climbers hoping to secure the national title for their school!
To help create a positive experience and friendly environment for kids, the competition is primarly a team competition therefore each team must meet the following criteria:
- Consist of 4 Climbers.
- Team members must compete in the same category.
- Teams can be single or mixed gender.
Schools can field as many teams as they wish.
The Main Team event is accompanied by an individual competitor ranking allowing smaller groups or individuals keen to compete a chance to represent their school.
If you booked as an individual, you will join another group for your session to ensure you have some moral support but all climbs will be individually scored.
Individual bookings can be booked with a member of staff, please contact us usng our contact details provided below.
The two highest scoring teams and individuals from each category in both Dublin and Cork will be invited to compete in the Grand Final in Awesome Walls Dublin on April 27th.
