Cliffhanger 2009

For the second year running Millhouses Park in Sheffield will be hosting Cliffhanger, so stick the 11th-12th July in your diary.

For climbers the big draw is of course the British Bouldering Championships which, once you have paid your entry to Cliffhanger is free to spectate.

There will be a range of "come and try"activities from Scuba Diving to Caving, plus a dyno competition and the annual CragX pull-up challenge. You can also expect a selection of retailers and stands, offering a wide range of products for the outdoor market and beyond.
