Fun and footloose: the BIFF 2018

Posted by Peter Burnside on 24/01/2018

The UK's zaniest climbing competition is here again. Tune in on Saturday at 7pm to see the final frenzy of the spectacular BIFF. All proceeds go to Climbers Against Cancer.

Fun, footless and freaking ridiculous. The Beastmaker International Footless Festival (BIFF) run by powerhouses Shauna Coxsey and Ned Feehally is dedicated to raising as much money as possible for Climbers Against Cancer (CAC). Spectator tickets cost £4, the full ticket price goes to CAC, and can be bought from the Climbing Works website

After some excellent footless antics in the qualifying rounds in London and Sheffield, with inspirational costumes from Jim Pope-on-a-rope and Captain Cutloose Louis Parkinson, the top five climbers from each round will be heading up to the Climbing Works in Sheffield on 27 January to test their guns against the greatest. Watch the films of the qualifying rounds on BMC TV:

We'll be helping raise extra money by having a live auction on the stream, so get your wallets ready and let's make 2018 BIFF's biggest year.
