Scottish Bouldering League 2019-2020


SNBL was supported this year by Red Chilli and Edelrid

The SNBL winter league started in October 2019 at Alien Bloc in Edinburgh and each month travelled around Scotland via TCA in Glasgow, Avertical World in Dundee, Three Wise Monkeys in Fort William and Transition Extreme in Aberdeen to finish in Eden Rock in Edinburgh in March 2020.

There were 148 competitors having a go at varying numbers of rounds in male and female categories for Juniors, Adults and Vets. Also, for the first time this year we had a separate Paraclimb category which attracted 4 competitors.

The best 4 results out of the possible 6 rounds are used to rank competitors and quite a few folk did 4 rounds whilst some did 5 just to make sure! But kudos for perseverance and committment goes to those who attended all 6 rounds: Alistair Lee and Craig Figures in the adults category, and April Marr, Koon Morris and Sandy Sharp in the vets category.

The final round held at Eden Rock coincided with Eden's own winter bouldering series final so it was a busy day, but thanks must go to the Eden wall staff for producing a fantastic series of problems that tested everyone. The podium positions are listed below and the full results can be found on the Competition Results page.
Category 1st Place 2nd Place 3rd Place
Junior Female Kasha Ogilvie = Dayna Ledingham = Tilly Knight =
Junior Male Stuart Fletcher Mark McNaught Fraser Wilson = Craig Allot = Stephen Keir =
Adult Female Emily Eadie Alison MacDougal Lily Huber
Adult Male Sean Hoare Alistair Lee Mark Garbe
Para Climb Keith Lynch Jay Mackenzie Erik Grundbrandsen
Veteran Female April Marr Koon Morris Avril Gall
Veteran Male Rueben Walsh Gareth Yardley John Craven

Those SNBL competitors who were not attending the final round but won a podium place: can they please let us know which wall they would be able to collect their prizes from and we will arrange it.

We would like to say thanks to all the climbing walls that hosted the league this winter; and of course a huge thanks to all the competitors who made long journeys across Scotland to take part.
