Scottish Youth Climbing Championships

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.


Climbing the final route

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.
