E9 ASBO 19   |  10th May 2019

ASBO 19 takes place on Friday May 10th. It's a night when we pull out all the stops, with a fun competition to take part in during the day and a spectacular final in the evening.

When and where?

ASBO 19 takes place at The Valley on Friday 10th May 2019, from 12 midday til late.

How much does it cost?

Taking part is free with your normal entry fee! If you don't want to try the climbs then you can also spectate for free!

Are there prizes?

There are; £500 is at stake for the male and female ASBO champions. Plus prizes from our sponsors. Ask an ASBO champion though and they'll tell you it isn't about the money!

Can I spectate

Oh yes, that's the best part! You'll want to come down to watch the finals - which are always epic! They will start at 9:30pm

What else is important?

Think about your travel arrangements... it is going to be extraordinarily busy. We recommend public transport if you can, and if not think about parking and walking in from Byker town centre, Ouseburn or The Pool. We also have tons of internal bike parking.

More information on travelling to The Valley can be found here.

How do I take part?

Competing is without a doubt the best way to take part in ASBO 19. The qualifying problems are similar in standard to our Winter Bouldering Series, covering the full range 3 to 7c+! Simply grab a scorecard at reception when you start, fill it in and drop it back when finished. Competing costs no more than your standard entry to the centre - plus you’ll get a free t-shirt! (If you're one of the first 200 odd in!)

ASBO 19 Schedule:
Qualifying: 12:00 - 21:00 (20:45 competition wall problems)
Finals: 21:30 - late

The ASBO finals are always great to watch. The top 4 male and female competitors will battle it out in a spectacular finale, each taking turns to take on the imagination of our route-setting team. Spectating is free; if you want to climb before, just pay your normal entry.

Behind the scenes

Our international team of in-house route-setters will be on hand to set the competition problems. Setting starts early in the week with the finals set and tested on the Wednesday (before being marked and stripped).

The testing team, of Chris, Suzan and Andy Porter make sure that the problems are vaguely sensible and possibly climbable! Then the finals come down and the qualifiers ho up. Once the qualifying is finished you will see the setting team, plus helpers, take down the qualifying problems and put up the finals. Remember they’ve tested these *cough* thoroughly, they aren’t just making it up as they go along!
