results and round-up – bmc ycs 2017 round 2!
The Youth Climbing Series (YCS) is run by the British Mountaineering Council (BMC) and gives youngsters aged between 7 and 17 the chance to compete in a fun series of competitions within their region.
This competition series is a great way to introduce young climbers to the thrills of competitive indoor climbing. The emphasis is on fun, with the selection of routes ranging from “easy” to “hard” and getting progressively more difficult the higher up the climber gets.
These events rely hugely on volunteers to act as Belayers, Judges and Chaperones. Without the willing support of these volunteers (more often than not these are parents of competitors) the events would not be possible so a big thank you to everyone that gets involved!
For Round 2 we had 7 Craggy Youth Team members and a great number of Youth Squad members also in attendance. It’s always great to see you all in action and Saturday was no exception – We are so proud of all of you!
