Foundry Bouldering League 2009/10 Final Report

The final of the 3 round league produced an exciting finish with some very close scores in the under 13's with 1st male James Waterhouse (192), 2nd male Alex Hall (187). First female, Pareesa Tai (183) and 2nd female Mary Clerkin (179). The middle recreational category was by far the busiest of the leagues 3 categories with Luke Jones (391) in 1st and Ed Hartley taking the runners up slot (367). It was a close run for top female between British Team members Becky Hall in 1st with 304 and 2nd Alice Waterhouse (300), though Alice is also a Junior (u16) so a good effort. The top ten places had 5 under 16's in this category. The elite category was this this year won by British Bouldering Team member Diane Merrick, with Ed Morris taking 1st male.
