Young Guns Summer Festival

Young Guns is returning to the Castle this summer with more exciting blocs & challenges! 

The sickest, slickest and trickiest bouldering comp exclusively aimed at today’s Young Guns! A total of 20 fantastic boulder problems, in a fun competition format.

  • Saturday 14th July
  • 09:00-18:00
  • Limited spaces 

What to expect?

This is a unique bouldering event with world class problems - set for all levels of difficulty and reach. With 20 diverse challenges there'll be something for everyone to crush; it's not just for the 'pros'. Participants are distributed using the BMC Youth Climbing Series format. 

This year we're including a special round for the Mini Guns - featuring a special climbing & obstacle adventure.

To ensure everyone can take part, there will be four qualifier categories climbing at different times:

Time               Category Year of Birth
09:45 - 11:00       Minis   born in 2011-2013 (minimum age 5)
11:00 - 13:00 Cat E born in 2009-2010
13:00 - 15:00 Cat D born in 2007-2008
13:00 - 15:00 Cat C born in 2005-2006
16:00 - 18:00          Cat D & C FINALS         

For all categories the registration will open half an hour before the scheduled time for climbing.  All entrants for categories D & C will climb at the same time - the top 3 athletes from each category (male & female) will then go on to compete in a spectacular finals at 16:00!
