The ninth Climbing Works International Festival (CWIF) took place on March 7-8, 2015 at The Climbing Works, Sheffield. Held over two days,
The CWIF welcomed 350 climbers from over 20 countries.

Qualifiers took place Saturday morning, across a freshly set circuit of 30 boulder problems that narrowed the field down to 20 male and
female semi-finalists.

On Sunday, March 8, the Semi’s and Finals took place with the assembled crowd watching some phenomenal pieces of climbing on the Berghaus Competition
wall.

This highlights film captures some of the ideas and flavor behind The CWIF – climbers having fun in a competitive setting – and shows why bouldering comps
don’t have to be serious.

The CWIF 2016 dates have also been announced and you can find these dates at the end of the film.
