The first round of the BMC Youth Climbing Series took place at The North West Face climbing centre in Warrington last Saturday. A fun day was had by everyone with lots of impressive climbing from young climbers who had travelled from all over the North West & Lakes area.
MCC was represented by 5 climbers aged 8-16 with one climber in each age category. For many of them it was their first time attending a competition of this style and size, so nerves were running high.
Bella came 3rd in her group and Adam, Charlie and Isaac all narrowly missed out on the podium all taking 4th place.
The next round takes place at MCC on the 3rd of March so our climbers will be hoping to gain a few extra points back on their home turf.
The top three from each age category after 3 regional rounds go to the National Final in Edinburgh. Here they will be climbing as part of the North West & Lakes Team.
