Challenge Everest Newcastle 2022


Challenge Everest Newcastle

The event…

In teams of 5 you will compete against rival teams to achieve the greatest number of ascents to win the challenge! No previous climbing experience is necessary.

You will rotate around various climbing walls, completing ladder climbs, crimp climbs and volume climbs. You will complete the climbs in tag team drills (one person ascend, descend then pass it on to the next climber in your team)

As you complete the climbs, your individual team progress will be tracked from Kathmandu to the summit of Mt Everest, to see if as a collective group of competitors you can climb the height of Everest!
