Clip ‘n’ Climb

We’ve planned a fun and challenging event for all teams which will test your agility, speed and skill on a range of our climbing challenges including the ultimate test – the Leap of Faith!

Due to the number of teams, the event will be split into two groups.

Group 1 (Hoare Lea, WWA, Bishop Fleming):

  • 5:00 PM arrival
  • 5:15 PM safety briefing
  • 5.30 PM to 6:30 PM climbing session

Group 2 (Mark Holt and Co, Fairway Furniture, LHC Design):

  • 6:00 PM arrival
  • 6:15 PM safety briefing
  • 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM climbing session

Please note:  There is a well stocked café overlooks the Clip n Climb arena. There are hot and cold drinks available and as well as hot and cold food. No food can be taken down into the arena & all drinks must be in sealed bottles.

Playing by the Rules

The structure of the sessions will be –

  • 10 minute warm up – opportunity for the participants to try out different walls and get used to the harness etc
  • 40 minutes competition – broken into 10 minute segments (4x climbs)
    • Each participant will attempt 4 different walls
    • You will have 5 minutes to attempt this, you will be scored using the challenge plates on the walls (each wall has 3 challenges escalating in difficulty)
    • You will then have 5 minutes to recover and move onto your next wall
  • 10 minute close of session – each team will select 1 team member to take on the Leap Of Faith
      • You will gain bonus points for their team based on the level they jump to and grab the trapeze (1 – 10)

Every participant will be given a score card.

  • Teams of 4 players
  • Velcro
  • Big Cheese
  • Jungle Gym
  • Triffid
  • Cloud 9
  • Lightening Crack
  • Aliens
  • Orbital
  • Dome Chimney
  • Zig Zag
  • Steelworks
  • Speed Climb
  • Stairway to Heaven
  • Dry Ice
  • Jungle Vines
  • Sky Scrapper
  • Checkerplate
  • Amazing
  • Pixetron
  • Leap of Faith


To keep the competition as fair as possible for all teams, all competitors will be asked to abide by a few rules:

  • Teams should consist of up to 6 participants
  • Each participant will attempt 4 different walls
  • Participants can only climb for 1 team
  • Teams can choose 1 team member only to participate in the bonus challenge ‘The Leap of Faith’.
  • The evening is run to a tight timetables therefore if you are late for your booked time slot you may forfeit your place for the competition and may have to wait until the end to take part. Please arrive in good time to get ready and briefed before your climbing slot
  • Participants must remove all jewellery before they climb
  • Participants are asked to attend the safety briefing and comply with all the rules and instructions provided, including awareness of safety zones, clipping rules and how to descend safely on the auto belay
  • All participants must use Personal Protection Equipment (harnesses and karabiners) provided by Clip ‘n Climb Plymouth. No personal harnesses are permitted
  • Climbers are requested to wear trainers or appropriate footwear for climbing. No open toe or heeled shoes are allowed
  • In the interests of fair play, no rock climbing shoes are permitted
  • We do not allow chalk in our arena
  • The decision of CNC staff is final. Any participants answering back will be given detention

The evening is run to a tight time schedule which does not include time for practising on the climbs. Some of the climbs are harder than they look so organising who does which climb and practising beforehand can contribute hugely to your final results
