The Senior Lead Team that will represent Great Britain at international climbing competitions in 2014 has just been announced.

On the back of the results of the 2013 British Lead Climbing Championships and other events in 2013, Senior Lead Team manager Ellie Howard has selected the following climbers onto the squad.

The new team members will train together throughout 2014 and some will attend some of the IFSC Lead World Cups if they are climbing at the required level. This promises to be a good year for the GB Senior Lead Team and training events are already planned as well as some training sessions with the junior lead team.
