Beacon Climbing Centre end of term Youth Climbing Comp… This is a fun day for kids of all abilities and experience, who were born between 1997 and 2006, at Beacon Climbing Centre http://www.beaconclimbing.com in North Wales.
Each competitor will be given a score sheet with a list of 15 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.
