The festival is a high octane event and comes to Sheffield annually and is hosted by the organisations that runs the British Bouldering Championships.

Every summer the Peace Gardens, Barkers Pool, Millennium Square and other areas are transformed to accommodate high adrenaline sports, such as assault courses, zip lines and orienteering to parkour, skateboarding and mountain bike demos.

There are also numerous trade stalls, live music and bars.
