Up and coming events in March

Saturday 13th March - BMC Youth Climbing Series Regional final: We are expecting about 50 young climbers from 7 to 15 years to compete in the final Peak area round competition. So there will be lots of keen youths bouldering, top roping and leading.

Saturday March 20th - British Junior Climbing Team: A 40 strong youth team will be here training on 13 specially set routes. Expect the Main 'Five Ten' lead wall to be busy where most of the routes will be.
