Rob Adie is the BMC Climbing Walls and Competitions Officer and he is going live on the UKC Forums tomorrow! That's Friday the third of September.
He introduces himself on the BMC Website:
"I provide advice about climbing wall related issues and am responsible for organising all the BMC's climbing competitions. I sit on the climbing wall and competition committees. I offer climbing wall managers and developers advice and information, making sure climbing walls are run with the interests of its users as a priority. I also organise the BLCC, the BBC, the BMC Leading Ladder and help run the British Climbing Team. I previously worked for Entre-Prises Climbing Walls as a designer. I try and claim to be a hardcore ice climber, but can sometimes be found greasing off sloping holds in the peak."
There is a huge competition coming up at Ratho next weekend - the IFSC World Youth Championships. Rob Adie will be there. If you have any questions about this competition or anything competition or climbing wall related - ask Rob!
Rob will be live on the forums from 9am tomorrow - post any questions in the thread linked at the base of this news item.
