Youth Open Results


On Friday 25th July White Spider Climbing hosted the BMC Lead Youth Open 2014.


There was some fantastic climbing from all categories and some inspirational climbing from the finalists! 

'The lead event on Friday was held on the relatively short walls of the White Spider, meaning that the routes were short and sharp and packed a real bouldery punch. The qualifiers produced really determined efforts from those that made the finals, with everyone giving it maximum effort in the heat.' – BMC


Routes where set by Yann Genoux and Mike Langley; Challenging in different ways and served up some great variety for the climbers .. and thrilling to watch!

BMC Summer Youth Open

BMC Youth Open

The BMC Summer Lead Open Youth Event will be held on 25th July here at White Spider Climbing. 

ONLINE ENTRY NOW OPEN   –   Closes midday Wednesday 23rd July!

This is a fun competition but also part of the selection process for the GB Junior Bouldering and Lead Teams. 

'The BMC Open Youth Competitions are open to young climbers born between 1 January 1995 and 31 December 2002 and who are eligible to compete for Great Britain (ie hold a GB passport). Others may be invited at the discretion of the BMC.

Team managers from both the lead and bouldering teams will be looking at performances in these events as it will be used as part of the continuing monitoring process for the Great Britain Climbing Team. Consequently, these results will be considered – and will count – when selection for next year's GB team is is made.'

We look forward to seeing you there!
