The Climbing Unit is 1

End of season comp and party celebrations for this premier bouldering venue

1 year ago The Climbing Unit in Derby opened it's doors for the first time after lots of tireless hard work from Dan Bradley and his dedicated team. It's been a great year for them and the wall has certainly bedded in nicely, with consistent high quality setting and friendly vibe. We're delighted to carry on our support and will certainly be there to raise a glass, maybe even climb a bit beforehand, and look forward to many more fun years ahead. 

Well they opened with a competition and 1 year later they celebrate with the final round of their 1st Winter bouldering series, but this time they have got a licensce and will follow it with a 1st birthday party. Plenty of prizes will be up for grabs, particularly in the raffle that will go on through the evening. So even if you don't fancy your chances of winning the series, you'll still be up for winning some cool prizes. 

Tunes will be provided by Mr 'Gus' Chris Hudgins, headliner of the North Face party in Kalymnos and DJ for the famous Climbing Works Parties. 

Competition will run from 5.30 - 9 pm after which the true party will start and run through to midnight.
