Sharpen your Tools – Winter is here and so is this unique event!

Posted by Simon Gee/Rob Adie on 09/01/2012

Make a date in your diary for the first ever north-east of England dry tooling competition, on Saturday 11th of Feb 2012 at Sunderland Wall.

In association with Roxcool and Team-Schmoolz, Sunderland Wall will be hosting a day of tooling madness and fun for all, culminating with the finalists battling their way to the top of the 23m barrel and glory.

If glory isn’t enough, there are over £1500 worth of prizes to be won, and all registrations/entrys will be given a beanie generously provided by The Mountain Boot Company, Mountain Equipment and other sponsors.

Competition categories include junior and adult artificial dry tooling, and adult and senior dry tooling.

To cap off this event Greg Boswell, Britain’s most prolific winter climber will be presenting an evening lecture - free to all competitors.

Entry for the competition is £15 / £12 (20% discount for early registration), which includes competition and wall entry, equipment hire* and lecture ticket.

Full details, registration and rules are available here.

Tel: Sunderland Wall on (0191) 514 4234

Email enquires can be made here.

*all dry toolers must provide their own ice axes, B3 rated boots (not for Schmoolz) and eye protection. Schmoolz will be provided free of charge to those entering the artificial dry tooling comp.
