Challenge Everest Cardiff 2023


The event

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

You will rotate around various climbing walls, completing ladder climbs, crimp climbs and volume climbs (if you don't know what these are, you'll soon find out!). You will complete the climbs in tag team drills (one person ascends, then descends, then passes the baton 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 Mount Everest to see if, as a collective group of competitors, you can climb the height of Everest!
