The 3RD ROCK Spring Launch Games is a climbing festival celebrating all things climbing taking place at the Climbing Hanger, Sheffield in celebration of our new Spring/Summer collection launch.

This year, we are opening it up to the public in a day-festival format with a "for everybody" casual boulder comp, workshops, food and stalls (did someone say free beer?). The "main" event will be the vertical fashion show/bouldering comp with some of the best climbers in the world - a high-quality bouldering competition with a twist:

  • 8 athletes hand picked divided into 4 teams
  • The teams will be selected randomly, and made known to the athletes, live, on the day
  • Teams will be mixed, one female, one male in each team
  • Each team will face 4 rounds, each round will have 2 boulder problems. They will have to decide which athlete climbs which problem, and they cannot swap!
  • Scoring is made of the joint effort of the team

During the event the athletes will be wearing our new collection and you will be able to see it in action and learn more about it directly from our founder and designer - Jessica Mor


The event will take place with our partner on the event The Climbing Hangar, Sheffield. The festival will start at 9am with various workshops and events and the bouldering competition will start at 6pm.

Open to public comp

During the day, all participants can take part in the public comp which will include 25 boulder problems from V0 to V-hard so there's something for everyone.
