There is still time to apply for the competitions this year!

The first competition for Scotland South starts this Saturday on 14th January (South Scotland Round 1 at EICA: Ratho)

The first competition for Scotland North starts Saturday 21st January (Scotland North Round 1 at Avertical World, Dundee)

  • The 2012 YCS FUN competitions for children between the ages of 8 and 17 will be held through January and February.
  • There have been a few changes this year:
  • The geographical areas forming Scotland North and Scotland South Regions has changed a little with Dundee being included in the Scotland North region this year
  • The dates for the 3 Regional Rounds are different north and south
  • There are now 5 age categories with 3 top-roping their routes and the older 2 leading

These are great events, and if you have never tried a climbing competition before, never fear, you will be able to have lots of fun and get a good days climbing in at the same time.

You can compete at the event local to you only if you wish - just to try it, or attend at least 2 of the rounds to get a higher score and try and get selected to the Regional Team! The Teams then compete in a British Final, being held at EICA: Ratho in June. Teams also gain support from the MCofS for coaching and REALrock trips.

  • Full details of venues, times and Application Forms are available on the YCS Page
