We are excited to announce our competitions calendar for 2022!
Our calendar remains provisional at the moment, updates will be provided prior to each event based on current Government guidance.
As well as our staple British events of the British Bouldering Championships and British Lead Climbing Championships, we are pleased to announce the new Four Nations Youth Series which has been developed in close collaboration with Mountaineering Ireland and Mountaineering Scotland.
The Four Nation Youth Series, will involve four boulder and four lead events run in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Competitors can enter an individual event or the entire series to be crowned series Champion.
The English and Welsh events will include provision for Youth D, C, B, A and a Senior category. To be eligible to enter the Senior category, you need to be 16 in the year of the competition. This means anyone turning 16 in 2022 can enter in the Senior category.
