Junior BBCs 2007 at Cliffhanger

Junior BBC winners 2007

Sunday 15th July was the Junior British Bouldering Championships. This year, for the first time, it was held at the new Cliffhanger outdoors event in Grave's Park in Sheffield.

Fortunately the climbing surfaces had been built inside a huge open fronted tent because the day started with a light drizzle.   We knew from the downpour on Friday that the tent leaked in places. So, to be on the safe side, additional sheeting was added inside the tent by Mark Alderson and a team of volunteers.  It was a good job they did this as the rain got heavier and heavier as the competition progressed!

At times the rain was torrential.  In parts the ground was water-logged.  Ice-cream vans got stuck in the mud, and ominously the tent housing the bouldering competition began to leak! 

It could all been a very damp squid indeed.  But these things seem to rally people. 

At times it seemed a little surreal.  There was Sam Whittaker pounding out beats as he DJ'd inside the tent.  There was raining drumming on the tent canvas that then cascaded down in curtains at the open front and sides of the tents. All the while this was going on there was intense concentration going on in the competition from the young climbers.

Thankfully, the makeshift plastic sheeting did its job and the qualifying rounds and the eventual final went ahead successfully.  Shauna Coxsey took the Junior Female title and Tim Lloyd was the Junior Male winner.  the finalists are listed below.

The BMC would like to say a very big thank you to all who helped out and made this event possible.  Stars the lot of them!
