Highball – The Big Flash 2018
13th October 2018 - 14th October 2018£10
The Big Flash Climbing Festival 2018 will take place at Highball Climbing Centre over the weekend of 12 – 14 October. It’s a three day event focused around The Flash Championship, a world cup format bouldering competition which attracts some of the best climbers in the UK.
The total prize fund for the whole weekend exceeds £5000, with individual and team cash prizes across both The Flash Championship and Friday Night’s NuKids Comp. The 12 Flash Finalists will share almost £4000 between them, with the champions walking away with a sweet £500 each.
As The Flash Championship now attracts such a high level of competitor, we wanted to make sure we still have something up for grabs for our regular members. So, for 2018 we are introducing a new category called ‘Highball Heroes’ which rewards the top 3 Male and Female regular Highball climbers.
This year’s event will be our 6th annual festival. It’s one of the biggest events on the UK competition calendar and to date, it has raised almost £20,000 for various charities and good causes.
