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.

Categories for the Junior Competition:
7-12 years
13-17 years

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