Since opening Flashpoint Swindon in December 2019, we’re proud to have created a community of boulderers despite enduring a year of lockdowns. On Saturday 14 August 2021, we celebrated that community with our first Flashpoint Swindon summer party! We brought in a DJ, set up a BBQ and welcomed climbers of all ages to our wall for the day!
The party was a fun and inclusive event with a triathlon-style format – 3 events for the open qualification round consisting of:
- 20 amazing boulders
- 2 pump-inducing routes on The Beast
- a speed climbing challenge
The day kicked off at 10am with a dedicated comp for the under 18s.

This was followed by the open comp before a showcase final to crown the King and Queen of the Beast.
