World Cup fever returns to the UK! Hopes are high for the British Bouldering Team, as they take on some of the world’s best boulderers on home ground in Sheffield this weekend.

The weather has been kind to us so far this summer, with plenty of sunshine and dry conditions for high mountain adventures; fingers crossed that it continues.
