Double Trouble 2024

Our unique annual team competition returned for its second iteration this March here at Blochaus, being the only one of its kind in the UK, if not the world?

Requiring competitors to team up with a partner, they then took on an eclectic selection of boulder problems that required competitors to think outside the box and climb as one to succeed...

The route-setting team really stepped up the originality this year to create problems from the sublime to the ridiculous including a slackline traverse, a horizontal ladder climb, and even a rope swing!


Further hilarity was provided by the appearance of Nintendo heroes Mario & Luigi, fancy dress was not expected, but was certainly appreciated by everyone.

The madness continued into the finals where the top 5 teams faced off in a world cup style final with a twist, where every problem required teams to work together to complete, including an insane zipwire to trapeze style climb that really had to be seen to be believed.


Thanks to ample cold beers, energetic commentary from Jordon and good grub provided by ‘Terra Tacos’ the audience were in high spirits as our 2024 Double Trouble champions were crowned at the end of the evening, congratulations to the following for taking home the gold:

Male Duo Champions
