We're delighted to announce details of our Basecamp Summer Series 2014!

Last year's series was great fun & excellent motivation to keep the training up over the summer months. This year, we're back with something bigger and better! Basecamp have got on board as event sponsor & together with Evolv, they will be providing prizes for each round as well as overall league prizes for the winners! On the prize front, you can also look forward to Mens & Womens 'cash problems' in every round, as well as an extra special draw for any climbers who completes 5 of the 6 cash problems!

So, basically, it sounds amazing and you just need to know how it works and how to enter, right?

The series will kick off on 19th June and the opening night will coincide with an Evolv shoe demo and 10% off Evolv shoes for the night!

You will then have almost 2 weeks to complete the 20 problems- right up till 10pm on Tuesday 1st July. We'll then re-set the wall and kick off round 2 on 3rd July and so on. To be in with a shot of a league prize you need to hand in a card for all six rounds, but there will also be rounds prizes for each round.    
The scoring system is a simple;10 points for completing the problems first go, 7 for second go, 4 for third go and 2 for any go thereafter, and may we remind you (especially as the prizes are amazing!) that you must have your scorecard signed off by someone else who has seen you complete the problem!).

Entry costs €5/ round (€3 concessions) or €20 (€15) for the league, plus your normal admission to Gravity.  

Core Strength for Climbers Workshop- second class now scheduled!


On Thursday 5th July, Gravity are pleased to welcome Karen Doyle from the Maple Clinic to deliver a short workshop on core exercises for climbers. The workshop is ideal for anyone who is keen to improve their performance or who is starting to make use of our training room. Good stability & strength in your core & shoulders can make a huge difference to your climbing- whether it's keeping your feet on on overhangs, generating and controlling momentum in dynamic moves or saving your shoulders from aches & pains...


Karen will ensure that you have good form whilst doing some basic exercises & offer suggestions for progressing these to more challenging exercises using the gymnastics rings & swiss ball.

The cost of attending is €10pp/ €8 for students or unwaged. There is a max of 6 places- sign up a reception!


Members please note, the training room will be closed during this workshop!
