BMC Comps Committee

At the most recent BMC Comps Committee times were agreed for qualification to the GB Speed Team. These will be listed on the BMC website shortly.

They are also hoping to get funds for a Youth Bouldering Team at a Council meeting next month so fingers crossed. If the money becomes available selection procedures should then be announced.

British Lead and Speed Climbing Championships 15/16 October 2011

The British Lead Climbing Championships (BLCC) are spread over the weekend with the Juniors (under 20) climbing on the Saturday and the Seniors (16 and over) on the Sunday.  Held at the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena in Ratho (EICA:Ratho) the route setters (Neil McGeachy, Gary Vincent and Mark Pretty) had been hard at work for 2 days putting together challenging routes for the 79 climbers competing in the 10 junior categories and the Male Veterans.

There were 12 Quickdraws taking part and while fortunes were mixed there were some gutsy climbs on display.
