Youth Climbing Series Round 2 (Hot Rock) report

Last Saturday, 3rd March, the second round of the Youth Climbing Series took place at Hot Rock Climbing wall, Tollymore Mountain Centre.

76 competitors across all categories (aged 8-16) turned up for what was a very entertaining and friendly, competitive event..

It was also incredible to see representatives from several clubs across the northern half of the country on display - Hanging Rockers (Gortatole), NIYCT (Belfast), Evolution (Ganaway), Winders (Dublin), Hot Rock (Tollymore).

In the end, the excellent route setting of Eddie Cooper and Paul Swail meant that all groups were decided throughout all the ‘standard’ competition problems, with only Boys C going to a 3 way super-final. Just showing how close many of the competitors! This exciting super final was won by the determined Carson Carnduff, getting just that little bit further than Saul Calvert.

All in all, everyone left with a smile (and more tired than when they arrived :), and a lot of the volunteers and coaches from the respective clubs left very inspired by the standard of climbing throughout.
