FRiday 21 SEPTEMber 2018

The site at Laharum Grove opens at 1:00pm. Pitch your tent amongst the olive trees and lap up the last of the light as it bathes everything in gold. On Friday you're responsible for your own dinner (unless you've pre-booked for Deirdre's restaurant), make sure you fuel up.

Registration is open from 2:00pm-10:30pm – announce your arrival, get your name checked off, pick up your bag of swag and hit up the Festival Directors with any questions you have.

Beginners clinics with Oliver Miller run between 3.30pm-5.30pm (you must register by 3pm to attend). All beginners need to do a beginner tutorial, learning the basics of how to boulder safely before the climbing competition on Saturday.

Friday dinner is available for purchase from Deirdre's restaurant, contact Deirdre directly to organise. (This is not included in your ticket.)

A film (TBC) will be shown at around 8:00pm.

*** This is an aspirational schedule, we will try to stick to it but you know how things go. ***


There are thousands of critters: poisonous-merciless snakes, freak deadly spiders, laughing green and purple birds, funny little parrot things, koala bears that sound like oil derricks, and all kinds of amazing new bugs I don’t know the name of.
