2013 GB Junior Bouldering Team Announced

Coming into 2013 we are pleased to announce this years squad for the new GB Junior Bouldering Team.

The BMC’s Youth Open Competition weekend was used as the assessment trial to select the Team and this year they were held in Liverpool with The Climbing Hangar hosting the Bouldering.

The turnout was fantastic with nearly 170 competitors in the first ever bouldering Youth Open.

The selection process was a difficult job and was made by the Junior Teams Management and coaches as well as a representative of The Mountaineering Council of Scotland. The remit of the selection panel was to pick climbers who have a ‘realistic chance of making the top twenty in European Competitions’. After a difficult meeting the following 16 athletes were selected to become the first ever juniors to form an international bouldering team for Great Britain.
