Two of CYCC's senior leads, Jack Flynn and Dave Cussen will be competing for the first time at the British Bouldering Championships 2012 being held in Sheffield on the 7th & 8th of July. First held in 1998 and organised by the British Mountaineering Council it has grown to be a very popular event. 

The British Bouldering Championship will be the key attraction at Cliffhanger 2012 - one of the UK's largest outdoor-pursuits festivals. The guys at Cliffhanger sum up the event nicely:
Take one giant Big Top Marquee, spend a week building the world's biggest artificial climbing competition wall inside it, then another getting some of the best climbers in the country to set problems on it, fill it with a few thousand spectators on a hot summer's day, and you have the makings of a truly memorable event.
