British Team Trials took place on the 6th and 7th December 2008 at EICA - Ratho, on their brand new articulated competition wall.

The event was a great success for both the Juniors and Seniors, and the team management had some hard decisions to make over who would make the British Team with over 80 climbers to choose from. The routes tested all the competitors to the maximum, with some wild moves and some even wilder falls being taken by seniors and juniors alike.
