MY Climbing Series 2018
Welcome to the Midlands Youth Climbing Series 2018
The series is a fun, friendly competition for youth climbers age 7 - 17. It is a warm up for the British Youth Climbing Series run by the BMC and gives young climbers the opportunity to experience competitions in a friendly and supportive environment.
The climbers compete in groups according to age. In the bouldering only rounds, competitors must complete eight boulder problems, in the mixed rounds competitors complete three boulder problems and 3 climbing routes.
Groups E and D climb on top ropes with groups C to Junior leading.
The competition is open to anyone, not just those intending to climb in the BRYCS and competitors can take part in as many rounds as they wish. Certificates are awarded to the three climbers with the highest scores in each group after every round.
The best four scores determine the overall winners of the series with trophies and prizes being awarded at our grand final.
On Sunday 18th February 2018 Creation plays host to the next round of the competition.
The doors will be open from 9.00am, the heating will be on full throughout the centre as we are expecting a cold night before. Competitors should arrive in plenty of time to complete any neccessary registration paperwork. The cafe will be open with the usual breakfast sandwich available to help kickstart your day!
