Youth Climbing Series Final Round 13th March

On saturday 52 Peak area young climbers came to The Foundry to compete in the final round of the Peak Area Series. Each climber had to climb 3 routes and 3 boulder problems. Rob Napier did an excellent job with the setting, providing some great climbs. There were no ties in any of the 6 categories which is always a sign of a well set comp.

Some excellent results from Foundry Academy members and other young Foundry regulars include Abigail Rivett's 1st place in the girls 8-10, Pareesa Tai's 2nd in girls 11-13, Thomas Lee's 1st in boys 8-10, James Waterhouse and Jake Beech taking the top two positions in the boys 11-13 and Finn Mckay's 3rd in the boys 14 -16.

Well done to all who competed in the 3 rounds and hats off to those of you who got through to the final on 12th June at Ratho, Edinburgh!
