It is disappointing to see the BMC promoting what is essentially a money making scheme for the organisers. One of whom has no recognised coaching qualifications. Youth climbing is well funded,supported and represented by the climbing community as a whole and does not need another "event" costing a ridiculous £155 for one day! The GB development squad selection day costs £35. Please don't support this cynical exploitation of children and their naïve parents.
