BMC Leading Ladder - Grand Final Approaching

© D Douglas
There is a month to go until the first BMC Leading Ladder grand final. With a slight change in competition rules, climbers can battle it out at the last two venues (Leeds and Sunderland walls) to try and qualify.

The final will take place on 29 March 2008 at the brand new venue Awesome Walls Stockport and entry for spectators is free.

Lucy Creamer explains the slight shift in qualification rules:

"There is still time to qualify for the final and get more score sheets in. We may select competitors who have climbed in two rounds rather than the stated three. As this was the first year of running this event, we are finding that not all the leading ladder criteria are proving practicable. So if you would like to qualify into the final, then try to get to two events and get the best scores you can. But of course priority will be given to all competitors who have climbed in three or more."

There will be prizes for the top three in each category and trophies for the winners. These will be presented at the end by Steve McClure and Gareth Parry. Gareth will also be providing the competition with a commentary throughout the day, as the compère.
