A great night at Sutton with Tenaya and Rock On!

Big thanks to Tim and Drew from Tenaya and Dominic from Rock On for providing us with a great rock shoe demo on Tuesday!

All our customers had a great night and really benefited from being able to try lots of different models on and actually being able to take them for a spin on the wall. Tim, Drew and Dominic were also on hand giving advice on fit and suitability as well as technique pointers for your climbing so a really great night for everyone.

Customers received 20% off all Tenaya shoes when they placed and order on the night.

We’ll be hosting another Demo in November – watch this space for further details!

Craggy Youth Team and regulars impress at Nationals!

Last weekend saw the Final of the British Lead Climbing Championships in Sheffield!

Craggy Youth Team members Matilda Collins and Joshua Bruyns were competing in categories Youth C Female and Youth B Male and regular Craggy climbers Peter Wycislik, Karin Bradbury and Toby Roberts were competing in Male Open, Female Veteran and Youth C Boys.

The event has the competitors climbing 2 Qualification routes on the Saturday and then the top few from each category going through to the Finals on Sunday to compete on an even harder climb.

In Qualification, Joshua Bruyns placed 15th and Peter Wycislik placed 21st – not ranking them high enough to make Sunday’s Finals. Matilda Collins qualified in 2nd place, Karin Bradbury in 4th place and Toby Roberts in joint 1st place. All making it through and looking forward to competing again the following day.

Finals came around and all of our climbers either improved on or maintained their ranking from Qualification – big congratulations to all of you!

Toby Roberts – 1st Place, Youth C Boys
Matilda Collins – 2nd Place, Youth C Girls
Karin Bradbury – 2nd Place,
