What is ‘The Mega Series’?

We love to celebrate all our amazing customers, from the seasoned professional, to those just starting their climbing journey.  The Mega Series aims at creating a competition environment that challenges the best, but is also accessible for those newer climbers too.

The series runs throughout the calendar year with ‘Qualification’ rounds happening typically every other month.  The format of each round may change, but in general they last 1 week, and you have unlimited sessions and attempts to conquer as many of the blocs as possible.  There is no set number of blocs in each round, but we’re averaging around 50 in the 2023 series.  

At the end of the year, we calculate the best performing 6 climbers in each category (best 3 results count) and take them into a IFSC isolation based format competition early in December.  If you didn’t make it into the final, come down and watch what the setters have asked of the climbers and show your support! It sure is one heck of a day…!
