YCS Finals Prep for Parents

Neil McGeachy is running a YCS Finals prep day for climbers at Transistion Exteme on 18th June.

In lieu of a prep day for parents here are some tips:-

1.       Set the lat/long of the climbing wall in your sat nav not the postcode.  Check on Google Earth so you know what it looks like and the most direct route from where you are staying.

2.       check your kid’s bag even if they say they have everything with them.

YCS Second Round Results

Despite fears that the Pleasance would be too small the day worked out really well with things running so smoothly that we managed to finish before 4pm.  The staff remarked to me a couple of times how impressed they were both with the quality of the climbing and the enthusiasm and support the kids showed towards each other. As soon as we cleared out they had their climbing shoes on to try the routes.  Thanks to Alan Cassidy and Mike Jeans for setting some crackers.

Results and current standings have been emailed out but here is a summary of Quickdraw performances:
