The League Finals Party
The first ever League Finals Party took place on the 11th May at HarroWall – crowning the newest sponsored athletes in London!
The Finals were the closing event of 3 months of Qualifying rounds of (very!) hard climbs. Each LCC gym hosted its own self-scored 3 week long competition for both members and non-members alike to test their mettle against fun, creative routesetting. The top 20 competitors from across those rounds were invited to battle it out through Semi-Finals on the morning of the Saturday 11th May. The top 6 Male + top 6 Female competitors from the Semi-Finals were then set to go through to the Grand Showcase Finals!

The Islands Stage
Throughout the day there were different elements around the centre, giving climbers a chance to compete – but also to have a great time even whilst falling off loads! Our Fun Comp follows a format where climbers submit a scorecard to come out of a prize draw – anyone can win! We also had a Dyno Comp that followed the same prize format.

On our Islands Stage Louis Parkinson hosted our first ever rounds of Assassins, where climbers attempt to stay on the wall whilst trying to steal each others tags. Last climber on the wall with their tag wins!
The Islands Stage also saw Louis hosting our Padstacking Championship. Balance on increasingly high bouldering pads without falling off! The person to stand on the highest amount of pads, wins a brand new beautiful Metolius Bouldering Pad.
On our Main Stage we had athletes battling it out for a meaningful prize. And on the other side (Islands stage) a wide variety of events that were just pure fun. The League Finals Party became a space and event in which you didn’t need to out perform other climbers to have a good day, come away with some brand new gear, prizes.
We had a great time throwing this party! We hope you had a wonderful time joining us for it – whether you were competing on the Main Stage or playing around on the Islands Stage. Thank you so much to all the athletes, climbers and party people who came together to create this special event.
Thank you to our wonderful sponsors of this year’s event: Evolv, Prana & Metolius!
Thanks to our fabulous routesetters Rob Napier & Percy Bishton.
Congratulations to The League Champions: Maya Patel + Sebastian Bush! The newest sponsored athletes in London.
