We are proud to announce our sponsorship of the 2024 ClimbScotland Fun Boulder Competition (CSFBC), a grassroots, entry-level bouldering event in Scotland. This partnership supports the competition’s second year, following a successful pilot in 2023.

The ClimbScotland Fun Boulder Competition (CSFBC) – now in its second year after running a successful pilot in 2023 – was set up as Scotland’s entry-level bouldering competition for young climbers wishing to have a go at competition climbing, and saw 164 competitors in its first year.

Nicholas Parkin, Managing Director at NICAS added:

“We are delighted to work in collaboration with ClimbScotland and support this competition which provides a stepping stone to young climbers wishing to compete in a non-pressured competition environment through their local walls. We hope that young NICAS participants get involved in the competition”

Welcoming the sponsorship, Jamie Smith, Development Manager for ClimbScotland, said:

“We’re delighted and very grateful to receive sponsorship and support from NICAS. ClimbScotland and NICAS have a great history of collaborating in the sector, and their sponsorship means we can offer this opportunity to young climbers, helping to reduce cost as a barrier to taking part.”

The qualifying round for CSFBC is being held between Saturday 9th June and Friday 12th July at ten participating walls:

  • Perth – UHI Perth College Climbing Wall
  • Orkney – The Pickaquoy Centre
  • Glasgow – TCA The Prop Store
  • Aberdeen – Transition Extreme
  • Hamilton – Hang On Climbing Centre
  • Kilmarnock – Above Adventure
  • Inverness – The Ledge
  • Edinburgh – Alien Bloc
  • Dundee – Block10
  • Fort William – Three Wise Monkeys

Participants can visit any of the hosting walls across Scotland to attempt eight boulder problems, then submit their scores online to find out whether they have made it into the next round.

The Grand Final will take place on 10th August 2024 at Block10 in Dundee.
