Cliffhanger 2009

The weekend of 11th-12th July Cliffhanger will be taking over Millhouses Park in Sheffield

There will be a wide range of free "come and try" activities, which makes this an ideal day out for kids of all ages. For those wanting retail therapy you can expect to find a wide range of exhibitors, which will of course include CragX.

For climbers the highlight of the event is probably the British Bouldering Championships, which are free to spectate. There will also be a Dyno Competition and CragX will once again be offering it's popular Pull up Challenge.

CragX has secured a number of "Show Specials", which include bouldering pads, ropes and cams.
