Last weekends final saw 187 young climbers competing at Ratho. This number included young climbers who regularly climb at The Foundry and Foundry Academy members , all of them representing the 'Peak ' region. Well done to all of you who took part. Jake Beech (2nd/33 in 11-13boys), Thomas Lee (6th/31 in 8-10 boys), James Waterhouse (7th/33 in boys 11-13), Abigail Rivett (19th/26 in 8-10 girls , Pareesa Tai (19=/33 in 11-13 girls) and Finn McKay (15th/33 in 14-16 boys).
