International Info

BjoeksThis year we will organize the 12th iteration of the oldest boulderevent in the Netherlands, The Bjoeks Boulder eXperience. The BBX has grown from a small regional event to a competition with 250 participants from all over the Netherlands. While most of the competitors are dutch, we do welcome people from all the corners of the globe. For the non-dutchies a bit of info is typed up below.

BBX12 will be held on the 2nd and 3rd of juli 2011 and will be held in and around Bjoeks climbing gym in Groningen. The competition part will be on Saturday. The qualies will be from eleven in the morning until five in the afternoon. We set 150 problems for the qualies from Fontainebleau 2 to 8a. The six most difficult problems will count for your score and the best 6 men and women will proceed to the spectacular finals.

After the finals there will be a party inside the Bjoeks climbing gym and there is a campsite next to the gym so everybody can stay the night.

On Sunday there will be the opportunity to try the problems again, have a go at our amazing concrete boulder structures or try to scale the 37 meters high tower. This of course requires a rope, which you can rent at the gym.

During the comp we will climb in five categories: boy to the age of 16, girls to the age of 16, Women 17-39, men 17-39 and 40+. For each category the best six climbers will go to the finals. The youth and 40+ categories will have the opportunity to qualify until 16.00 and their finals will start at 17.00.

At five o clock there will be a BBQ for all the competitors and spectators who register as a spectator.

Registration goes through the duch registration form in the “inschrijven” menu on the website. If you can’t figure out where to put your name and email, contact us
