Its back! Blazing sun, blazing sets, blazing bouldering! What does that mean? I don’t know either. But it probably has something to do with the return of the Summer Bouldering League!
This Friday kicks off the 6 round league into progress, with Alex Fry coming in to artistically set some plastic on our beautiful comp wall.
This bouldering League has 6 rounds and you must compete in a minimum of 3 to be put in with a chance at the final.

Three days of pizza, Wednesday + Thursday + Friday (The Summer Bouldering League)!
We’ve got a huge array of toppings, and excellent vegan choices for those not meat inclined.
We’ll be serving all the usual suspects, along with the flatbreads (yum), and the make-your-own!
Keep an eye out for the other specials we have going on throughout the week too…
The Little Flash, coined as one of the biggest Youth competitions in the UK, is coming up!
It’s fun, challenging and exciting; a great opportunity for young climbers to experience a large scale competition with qualification, isolation, a timed final, and judging, all in front of a big, supportive crowd!
The Little Flash is an ‘open event’ which means there’s no minimum requirement* and junior climbers can enter from across the country; it’s not limited to local, regular Highball climbers.
*This is a Youth Climbing COMPETITION and all entrants will be expected to have appropriate previous climbing experience i.e. entrants should be climbing regularly at Highball or other Climbing Centres (e.g. part of clubs, teams, NICAS, NIBAS etc..).
All entrants will need to complete the standard centre registration process and may also need to be supervised when climbing by an appropriate adult. If your child is not a regular climber at Highball or any other climbing centre, please give us a call to discuss whether the competition is suitable.
Registration opens on the 1st of May, so keep your eyes out for the opportunity to sign up.
Ever considered outdoor bouldering? Now is the time of year to start planning trips to the Peak District and Fontainebleau (if you’re feeling fancy)! The single necessary item to take with you, after climbing shoes, is a Bouldering Pad. They may look cool, but they’re also important for keeping you safe when (not ‘if’) you fall off those problems.
We’re going to give you a spicy offer right now: If you’ve hired a Bouldering Pad with us in the last 12 months then we will give you a whopping 25% OFF buying a brand new Pad from us!
Alex Fry is a Wild Country athlete, a full-time route setter, coach, and badass.
We’ve got him coming down to set our DMM Comp Wall this week, so expect some interesting and fun competition bouldering! It’s been a little while since we’ve had him here to set, so expect a different style! Personally, very excited.
Had enough of those funky smelling climbing shoes filling your nostrils after a heavy session? Well now’s the time to stop that smell and get that edge back on a shiny new pair of shoes!
Whenever you get a new pair of Climbing Shoes here at Highball, you can get 15% off a pair of Boot Bananas to keep their nice fresh smell as long as possible! Especially useful in the upcoming hot days!
