English Lead Cup 2023

Posted by Zoe Spriggins on 20/06/2023

For the final round of the Four Nations Lead Cup Series, we head to Exeter.

Date: 29 & 30 July 2023

Location: The Quay Climbing Centre, Exeter

Categories: Youth A, B and C, D, and Senior (16+)

Each category will face two qualifying routes and a final route. 

Categories Youth B, C and D will climb on Saturday 29 July.

Categories Youth A, and Senior (16+)  will climb on Sunday 30 July

All competitors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by one parent/guardian only, but loco parentis can be used where required. If a parent/guardian, spectator or coach, volunteers to assist in a Judge or Belayer role on the day, this will be in addition to the accompanying adult.

Format

There are two qualification routes per category, there will be no isolation for these routes. The starting order for the first qualifying route is random. Then the starting order for the second qualifier is the same as the first but staggered halfway. E.g. If there are 20 competitors in the category, number 11 will climb first on the second qualifier.

For the finals, all finalists will be held in an isolation zone. There will be a six minute observation of the final route, and then the finals are climbed on-sight.
