A massive turnout for the SYBC!

Eden Rock in Edinburgh hosted the Scottish Youth Bouldering Championships with the biggest turnout the event has ever seen, with 205 young climbers (114 girls and 91 boys) from all over the UK travelling to Scotland for the competition on the 25th May.

Eden Rock had all hands on deck for setting the week before, with their a setting team comprising Eden Rock staff and some of our ClimbScotland endorsed setters crafting 57 qualifying problems and a set of final problems that would be able to test all aspects of the competitors. With everything from burly testpieces to super technical slab problems requiring expert footwork and body position.

After a tough qualifying round, we saw extremely close competition across the catergories. Especially with Youth D Girls.

The finals didn't disappoint and provided some incredibly action, with more than a few nail biting final attempts on problems with the clock ticking away. The finalists all battled hard and gave it their all to try and secure a podium place.

The finals can all be watched on Facebook and photos from the event will be published in due course by our photographers Sandy and Iain.

The Scottish Youth Bouldering Championships was supported by SportScotland and our event sponsors Rock and Run and Holdbreaker who provided prizes for the podiums. We would like to say a massive thank you to these sponsors who help make this event happen and also to Eden Rock Edinburgh who hosted it for us, and of course a huge thanks to all the competitors who made there way to Edinburgh for the competition.
