The European Youth Series at Edinburgh International Arena were a great success this weekend. There were strong performances from British competitors Natalie Berry and Jonathan Stocking who made the finals in their categories, finishing fourth and fifth respectively.
The stars of the show were Mario Lechner from Austria, who won the Junior men category despite climbing with an injury, and Charlotte Durif from France who won again and is unbeaten so far this year in the European Youth Series.
Photographer Lukasz Warzecha has sent us a selection of superb images from the two days. You can check out more of his photography on www.LWimages.co.uk web site.
