The 2012/3 competition season wound up with great success. Half of the squad qualified for the national finals of the BMC Youth Climbing Series, held the 15th of June at the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena. Out of over 300 of the nation's best young climbers, alll of our squad members performed exceptionally well. Grace Spence-Green (pictured above with top British climber Steve McClure), our co-captain, won her category (Girls Youth A). This achievement is all the more remarkable because it's only Grace's second year competing. Cameron McLoughlin was tied for first place in Boys Youth B category and tied again in the Superfinal before being judged 2nd by countback. Stan Harris narrowly missed out on a podium in the same cateogory (Boys Youth B) with a 4th place finish. Jo Neame, in her first year competing, came 5th in Girls Youth C and Sam Roberts was 12th in Boys Youth A.
These strong performances contributed to London and SE area winning the regions trophy. The BMC have full results of the event available on their website.
