Topic - Young climbers and trad leads/headpointing

dmhigg - on 08 Nov 2012
I'm just back from the wall where I've been taught how to climb 7a by a 15 year old: elsewhere (!) there are younger kids climbing 8a. One can only imagine that with the proliferation of climbing walls and better coaching, together with what might in the future become a career path,there are going to be more very talented climbers who are physically extremely competent, but "traditionally" not considered to be mature enough to measure risk. How will these climbers be introduced to British trad climbing?
