With stripping the main wall the white boulders for the youngest climbers have become unavailable. If you want to visit us with small kids (4-6yo) we strongly advise to plan this on or after 29 September, as all boulders will be back by then.
As of Wednesday (21 Sept.) about 10 extra boulders will be taken out as well to make space for the qualification boulders. Setting of these qualification boulders is scheduled for Thursday and Friday. The gym will be closed on Friday for the finetuning and testing of all qualification boulders as well as the final preps. Most competition boulders will be taken out on Sunday evening and/or Monday morning, after which we’ll start resetting the missing circuit boulders. You only have one chance to give those competition boulders a try and that’s Saturday afternoon!
Right after the qualifications for the DBIYO (Sa 24 Sept. 10-13.30h) you can join the db9 XL (14-17.30h). There’s no need in signing up on beforehand, just pop along and enjoy this competition. You fill out your own scorecard and when you’re finished you exchange your scorecard for a lottery ticket. While our team processes all scorecards you can sit and relax with a beer. If you’re lucky your lottery ticket might be worth a very nice price in the raffle!
Do you want to come over as a spectator? Nice! Spectators are very welcome during the weekend.
If you don’t like all this fuss and simply want to boulder, we have a nice alternative for you. Bolder Neoliet in Rotterdam offers you a bouldersession for just € upon showing your subscription card or 10x card during the weekend (Fr-Su).
During the DBIYO there’s a CAC (Climbers against Cancer) clothes sale as well as a sale of second hand climbing gear (of which CAC will benefit 100%). Furthermore there’s a sale of Five Ten shoes that have been taken out of the production line (such as Anasazi). Need more reasons to visit us?
As of Monday 19 September our shop sells another climbing shoe brand: Unparallel.
The models Engage (€109,90), Up-Rise (€149,90) and Flagship (€169,90) are in stock. If you’re not yet familiar with this brand, please visit their website. Our team will help you finding the best shoe for your feet and your climbing level.
