Our Ice Climbing team have been out in Utrecht, Netherlands, this weekend and came back with FIVE MEDALS

In the Youth categories, we had a plethora of talented performers who had a great time and brought home silverware too.

Robbie Gorn finished in the top spot in male U18s. He now ranks first in this division for the Continental Open youth series, at just fifteen years old.

Silver for Nessa McShannon in the female Under 20s. The seventeen year old is placed joint first in the youth series after her gold meal in Brno.
