I have just come back from the climbing academy in Glasgow. This is the centre where the competition will be held! I wanted to visit there so I could get to know the walls to make it easier to find my blocs on the competition. The highest grade I climbed was a red problem (V6-V8) I was very pleased with this. My brother younger Oscar also did well and climbing a V4.
I enjoyed the blocs and forgot I was competing the next day so I kept on climbing for ages and my skin got quite thin and stingy so I bought some Tip Juice (hand balm) for my fingers. The cream contained lots of beeswax and made my hand sweaty and sticky which I hated. However it did work and my skin was ok.
