The seventh Rock the Blocs bouldering festival will be taking place in Kelowna’s Boulderfields this June. Festival organizer, Andy White, said, “Since the beginning, this fest has been about local developers engaging the bouldering community, spreading a bit of that Okanagan community love and sharing what is one of the largest and best bouldering areas in this part of North America.
“With such great support over the years, Rock the Blocs has become the largest outdoor bouldering competitions in Canada and local developers and organizers look forward to this event every year. We love this event and what it’s all about.” More here.

We may not get to have him here for the summer, but that doesn't mean that he's not crushing! Hive Ambassador @andrew__funk headed down to the Kelowna Boulderfields last month for the 6th annual Rock the Blocs festival to do a little pebble wrestling. The heat hasn't slowed him down and he snagged a few sends there before heading back to Canmore and sending Flying Ants, 5.14a. You never cease to blow us away, Andrew!⠀ #proudparents⠀ 📷 @owasmitth
