Results and Round-Up – BMC YCS 2017 Round 1!
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.
During the competition the kids are required to climb 3 routes and 3 boulder problems – scoring points for the distance that they manage to climb up the route or boulder problem. A maximum of 100 points is available on the routes and 60 on the boulder problems. All routes and boulders are set specifically for the competition and take in to account not only the age of the children that will be climbing them, but also their size and the strengths and weaknesses which are likely at their age.
Once everyone had been briefed and the kids had been split down in to their categories it all got started and the kids started cranking away on their specially set routes and problems.
For Round 1 we had 7 Craggy Youth Team members and a great number of Youth Squad members also in attendance. As always, everyone put in so much effort and represented us impeccably – We are so proud of all of you!
