What is the British Tooling Series
The British Tooling Series is a series of climbing competitions held at British Climbing walls in the lead up to the Scottish winter climbing season. It allows participants to hone their skills and strength while competing amongst some of the sport’s top climbers.
The results from these events will be used as part of the selection process for the GB Ice Climbing team who represent GB on the UIAA Ice World Tour.
