BMC Junior squad and team training day 20th March

On Saturday close to forty 12 to 18 year olds climbed up to 5 routes each. (Rob Napier and Dan Walker had set 15 new routes to attempt). Though it was only supposed to be a training day, climbers were never the less giving it their all. This was no doubt in the knowldge that the Team Manager, Ian Dunn, coach Tom Randall and others were watching performances very closely to help select future team members. Hopefully I will have some images of the event coming soon!
