The showSkyMasters

The UK's most exciting climbing competition 
WOW, It's back and even more intense. The unique SkyMasters climbing wall (or should we say, floating ceiling) is suspended from the NEC rafters, and forms an entirely overhanging route. Climbers have to scramble across immensely challenging obstacles to reach the finish in the quickest time. The races will be on Saturday and Sunday so don't forget to look up.
