Aged 7-17 years and love climbing? Enter the hugely popular Youth Climbing Competition at Beacon Climbing Centre on Saturday 14th December.
It doesn't matter whether you've been climbing for ages or have just started out. Everyone is welcome and taking part is a great opportunity to gain inspiration from other climbers, hook up with new friends and enjoy climbing in a fun and sociable atmosphere.
Competition Summary... This is a fun day for kids of all abilities and experience, who were born between 1996 and 2005. Each competitor will be given a score sheet with a list of 10 specially set climbs. Competitors can select 5 top rope climbs to attempt, with harder climbs being worth more points. Competitors have one attempt at each of their 5 climbs. There are full points for getting to the top, and bonus points if they don't get to the top, but make it to a designated bonus hold. With only one attempt at each climb, selecting the right climbs is a challenge in itself.
