On Sunday I went to the BMC’s Open Youth bouldering event at The Climbing Works, which is my local climbing centre and where I train the most! I was a bit nervous as this was my first event in where I was competing in my 2016 category of “B”, which is for children born in 2001 and 2002.
On Saturday I went to The Climbing Unit in Derby for a BMC Regional Academy training session. You get invited to these extra sessions if you come in a podium position in your regions YCS qualifying rounds. The theme for this day was “Climbing Smart” and was run by Tom Greenall, Lucinda Whittaker and Dave Mason.
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.
