On the 11th of December 2016 I tried out for the Awesome Walls Ace Squad and, thankfully, I got in!
On Saturday 16 January I went to the BMC National Academy at The Depot climbing centre in Manchester. These academies are open to climbers who finish in the top 10 in the YCS final or make it to the final in one of the Open Youth competitions (leading or bouldering). As was 6th in the YCS and made the final 3 times in the Open Youth Boulder comps I was invited.
I am lucky enough to have climbed in climbing centres all over the country, from Scotland to Devon. Here is a list of all the centres I have been to and what I liked about them.
