Cliffhanger 2010

Millhouses Park, Sat 3rd and Sun 4th July.

As well as hosting the IFSC Bouldering World Cup, Cliffhanger 2010 will have a wide range of free "come and try" activities for kids of all ages.

CragX will be bringing our Pull-up Challenge (how many can you do in 1 minute?), plus a new challenge which will be revealed on the day.

It's only a few days before the event and we are still busily collating special offers and bargains.
As a quick guide there will be lots of hardware, harnesses, helmets and ropes with discounts of around 20-50% off. Plus clothing bargains, mostly with at least 50% off.
