Qualifying results

The qualifying round for the Scottish Schools Climbing Competition organised by Glasgow Climbing Centre took place in November and December 2015 at a number of walls around the country. With a new primary school category, 280 young climbers took part in the competition. Read on for the full results...

Rounds were held at Glasgow Climbing Centre, Alien Rock, Avertical, The Peak and Transistion Extreme, and with Pickaquoy, Spireroxx and Inverness Leisure hosting a round for the first time, giving climbers in the Highlands and Islands the opportunity to take part in the competition. ClimbScotland also supported the competition by providing MCofS endorsed route setters.

Lots of new faces

Thanks to opening another age category for primary school pupils and with new walls in the north of Scotland, a record number of young climbers took part in the competition this year - another sign that climbing is a growing sport among young Scots.

Here are the results:

For the Primary School Girls Competition Hannah Kerr from Croftmalloch and Stephanie Miller from East Craigs Primary managed to top all their routes and take the Primary School title!

For the Primary School Boys Competition we have a three way tie for the title and the only boys that managed to top all their routes Louis Langlands from St Josephs Primary, Jamie Partridge from Lundin Hill Primary and Jamie Cross from Arthurlie Primary!

For the High School Competition the top five climbers from each of the High School categories will be invited to the final which will be held in Glasgow Climbing Centre on 12 March 2016.
