G Force 2017

Gravity Climbing Centre, Saturday 25th February - Sunday 26th February 2017

It’s time for G-Force 2017 at Gravity Climbing Centre, the biggest and best climbing competition in Ireland this year!

Over 200 competitors getting together to try their very hardest on nearly 40 top-notch boulder problems over 2 days! The event is open to everyone and the qualification round is a lot of fun. If you don't make the semi-final don't worry, you can still enjoy a big BBQ, and be inspired by seeing some amazing climbing as the top 20 battle it out!

How does it work?

Qualification takes place over 2 sessions on the Saturday and is a pretty relaxed affair – competitors mark their own card, there are no judges and no isolation. There are 25 problems to have a go at, ranging from font 5's to 7c and you have roughly 3 hours to climb. You can enter individually or as a team of 4 and there are prizes for the highest scoring teams.

Following the qualification round, the top 20 male and top 20 female competitors will progress to the semi-final, which takes place on Sunday morning. The semi-final follows the IFSC format, 5 minutes to try the problems followed by 5 minutes rest. It's a tough round and a great show for spectators! After this there will be a few hours break and a BBQ, while the setting team change over the wall in preparation for the final.

G Force culminates on Sunday evening with this stunning display of climbing – the top 6 men and women batting it out for a €500 cash first prize! Last year, the final brought you some amazing climbing, with local talent and visiting starts giving it 100% effort!

There are 2 options for buying tickets- you can pay now via the website or pay in Gravity up until the 20th February, but whichever option you choose you must register to enter.

Your ticket includes entry to the competition, T-shirt, BBQ and entry to watch the semi-final & final rounds if you don't make it through to compete.
