Junior British Bouldering Championships 2017

Junior British Bouldering Championships 2017

The depot Manchester is always my favourite centre for boulder comps. The massive amount of wall space means less queues and a lot less stress. Youth B and C qualifying was first as usual. 8 blocs in 2 hours, scramble format. I liked that in this competition all our boulders were in the same room so we could see them all without having to walk between rooms. My qualification went pretty smoothly and for once I finished before the time…

BMC Youth Climbing Series 2015 Round 1 – Dynamic Rock

As usual for a competition day I woke up early on Saturday to travel to Swansea with my mum and my brother for the first round of the youth climbing series. We stopped off in McDonalds for some hash browns before heading off to the centre. Once we arrived at the centre we went straight to look at the routes and boulders. We really liked the look of some of out climbs and couldn’t wait until the competition started. This…

On the morning of the competition we got up early and went to the Premier Inn restaurant for breakfast.

We got to Awesome Walls later than I wanted to but were still in time for registration. I found out after registration that I was number 1. I thought it was impossible to…

British Speed Climbing Championships (BSCC) Sheffield 2014

British Speed Climbing Championships (BSCC) Sheffield 2014

First place The night before the competition we found out that it didn’t start until 5 so we didn’t have to get up so early. When we did get up we had breakfast in the hotel and went down to watch the paraclimbing final. It was really inspirational to see them climb the routes that I had in the lead championship the day before. The seniors still had to climb their final routes before the speed climbing started. They were…

When we went into the centre the walls weren’t as high as I remembered and the competition wall wasn’t as scary as I thought…
