It was the first time ever that the adidas Ticket to Rockstars came to the UK and Louise Flockhart is the first UK climber to gain entry to the Ticket to Rockstars final in Stuttgart, Germany. Finalists will be competing to win the wildcard entry into one of the most spectacular events of the pro-climbing calendar, the adidas Rockstars main event!

With the chalk and dust of the first ever adidas Ticket to Rockstars (T2R) event in the Climbing Hangar London already settling, where Louise Flockhart is the first winner to climb her way into the T2R final which will be held in Stuttgart, Germany, climbers around the UK are now eyeing up the next event taking place in The Climbing Hangar Plymouth on 24 August. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Congratulations to our winner, Louise Flockhart, and shout out to Ajda Remškar in second place and Selena Thyssen in third. (We didn’t mean to leave Selena out of the shot but she’d already left to go party in the Hangar before we took the photo) LOUISE IS ON THE PLANE! She’s headed to Stuttgart, all expenses paid, to compete in the T2R Final and could get a wildcard to Adidas Rockstars if all goes well. We’re right behind you, Louise! 💪 Either way, she’ll stay at the official athlete hotel, chill in the competitors lounge, and rub shoulders with the best climbers in the world at the Porsche Arena. It’s a prize money can’t buy. And we have more up for grabs at our competitions in Plymouth and Liverpool. Places are still available at our kids comps in both venues, plus the open comps for men and women! Get your names on the list and join us for another banging night of beats and boulders. @adidasrockstars #t2r #climbingmeetsmusic #adidasrockstars #tickettorockstars #t2rlondon #heretocreate #fiveten #goretex #adidasterrex #theclimbinghangar #hangarlife #boldertogether #climbing #bouldering #competition

Hosted by The Climbing Hanger, this is the first time T2R has been held in the UK, and the top performing male and female climber in the Open Jam will go on to Stuttgart where they will be treated to the full adidas experience before competing alongside some of the most recognisable faces in climbing.

Three open events are being held at The Climbing Hanger’s venues located across the UK in Plymouth, Liverpool, and a special Women’s Only event in London. Entry is available to all ability climbers aged four and over to test their skills on exciting boulder problems and experience an unforgettable day.

Exclusive to the London event was a Beginners Workshop with Britain's most successful competition climber, Shauna Coxsey, who provided expert tips and coaching advice on how to improve your climbing skills to group of 60 psyched climbers.
