SEND! at White Spider & our Birthday!

tokyomagic-white-spider-indoor-climbing

Saturday 13th September

 

White Spider Climbing turned 2 over the weekend. The party encompassed everything we love and do .. Climbing!

 

We hosted an awesome boulder competition with £1000 cash prize fund and over £1000 worth of prizes from our Sponsors, speed competition, taster sessions and slackline lessons for all the family, we also had Peel&Chimney’s Van serving fresh organic Pizza, other activities included face painting and a fun rope coiling competition.

 

The main focus of the day was to enjoy our success with the people that have contributed to our story.

 

So let’s start with the slacklining and our MC Harry Cloudfoot, Harry was a previous White spider employee who is missed at the centre. He brought the crowd together and really injected some passion and fun into the whole event; it was great to have him back putting smiles on everyone’s faces. Harry was around all day both teaching and demo-ing the ‘slackline’ (Slacklining is a practice in balance that typically uses nylon or polyester webbing tensioned between two anchor points .. then you’re meant to walk along it!)

Our play Castle as always drew in our smallest climbers! With their own mini competition, activity sheet, face painting and goodie bag we had smiley faces in the café all day long.

 

Stew, White Spiders human machine, ran the speed climbing competition and the ‘Leap of Faith’, keeping everyone busy and having a good laugh along the way.

 

The main event, SEND! @ White Spider, drew in some fantastic climbers and they weren't disappointed with some awesome setting by Yann Genoux, Percy Bishton and Evie Cotrulia! The fun comp starting early and got the centre buzzing from the start, the elite category rocked up a little later to start their qualification round of 25 problems, each problem getter harder and harder .. and then we had 5 males and females ready to battle it out for the prize money!  Matt Cousins, Thom Arnold, Jon Partridge, Kris Suriyo and Dave Bone for the men and Alexia Basch, Becky Whaley, Lucy Englert, Lucy Bradbury and Libby Gamble for the girls. 3 Problems to complete each in front of a home crowd … we saw some excellent and inspiring climbing, well done to everyone and a massive congratulations to our winners Matt Cousins and Alexia Basch!
