ROCfest is back for 2023! See below for everything you need to know about Manchesters ultimate climbing competition.
Tickets are £20 entry, with a limited number of Finals Spectator add ons available for an additional £5
Taking place at Rock Over Climbing in Manchester on Saturday the 4th of February 2023. This is a climbing competition unlike any you’ve seen before. We’ve developed a unique scoring system that allows climbers of every division to compete alongside each other.
The centre will be set with 100 problems for competitors to choose from; each numbered from 1-100. The number the route is marked with, is equal to the number of points you will earn for completing that problem. The grading difficulty will rise alongside the points value. You’ll also receive a bonus 5 points for each problem you flash. At the end of qualifiers, everyone’s points will be tallied (using your top 20 climbs) and prizes will be distributed accordingly, to each division.
Registration will open at 9am, qualifiers will be from 10am until 4pm and the finals will being at 5:30pm.
Every division will receive cash prizes from the £8,000 prize pool.
1st – £1,500
2nd – £750
3rd – £400
4th – £200
5th – £150
