Posted by Rob Adie on 01/12/2014

The first round of the 2015 Junior Lead Cup series took place at Awesome Walls Sheffield this weekend. After this event the Junior Lead Team mangement met to look at the year's competition results and decide on the 2015 GB Junior Lead Climbing Team.

As this is the start of next year's series, competitors competed in the category they will belong to in 2015.
 
There were some fantastic performances from all the categories in Saturdays competition and it was great to see all the future talent coming through. 2015 promises to be a very strong year for the GB Climbing Team.
 
 
The results from this event and other BMC competitions throughout this year are used to select the team for the 2015 season and will help determine who goes out to Europe and beyond to represent GB Climbing on the Junior Lead team.
