Stanage Plantation – April 2014

This was my first climbing trip to Stanage and was amazing!  I was able to climb with Alex Norton, Alice Killington, Ed O’Grady and others from the Climbing Station.

I topped a V4 on the Business Bolder, as well as flashing some V1s and 2s.  My favourite was Lone Slab, which features a lot on my video!  I hope to get out a few more times before Ratho, if the weather lets us.

Awesome Day at Awesome Walls

Leading up the Prow

During the Easter holidays I went to Awesome Walls, Sheffield, with The Tower Youth Climbing Club (TYCC).  This was the second time I had been, and I wanted to do some high climbing, to get ready for the high walls at Ratho.

Approaching the top of the competition wall

I led some routes on the prow and then led the 6b+ up the competition wall, all the way to the top!  It’s definitely a long way down!

BMC Youth Climbing Series 2014

The MY Series set me up well to go into the rounds of the BMC YCS.

I won the first two rounds, which were at Wolf Mountain and The Tower.

Chalking up on a route at Creation

The final round at Creation was exciting!

Three of us topped everything, so had to climb off against each other.  Another girl and I matched each other again, so tied for first.

I was really proud to win my category and am looking forward to the finals at Ratho now!

Really happy!
