After much consideration, we have decided to change the date of G-Force to become a spring event, which we hope will benefit those who are interested in National & International competition, as well as fitting in after a winter training season. We hope the change of date hasn't caused any inconvenience and we hope that you'll join us in Spring 2017 instead!
G Force 2017 will be a massive 2 day comp, with qualification on Saturday 25th February & Semi-finals and finals on Sunday 26th February.
Qualification takes place over 2 session 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 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 starts giving it 100% effort!
