Why is G Force Ireland's biggest and best bouldering competition?

G Force 2018 will be a massive 2 day event, with qualification on Saturday 3rd March & Semi-finals and finals on Sunday 4th. It is our biggest event of the 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 our 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 30 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 mins rest. It's a tough round and a great show for spectators! After this we'll be having 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 stars giving it 100% effort!
