Two weeks ago we made the long journey back up to Edinburgh International Climbing Arena, Ratho so I could compete in the MCofS Scottish Youth Climbing Championships. It was a great event and it was nice to see some of the girls from the BMC National Finals again. I flashed both the qualifying routes and went through the the final in joint first. This was my first time in proper isolation, which was a bit weird but OK.
Our final route was graded F7a+ and I climbed as high as just one other girl. The difference was, she did it in 3mins 2secs and I took 3mins 27secs, so I took the silver. I was very happy with this, and with how my climbing has developed over the summer holidays. As ever, we made a little video, which I hope you enjoy. I am now getting ready for the Midlands Youth Climbing Series again, which starts at Alter Rock in less than two weeks time. I’m in Girls D this time, so am looking forward to testing my skills against some harder climbs. I’ll let you know how it goes!
