BMC Youth Climbing Series

The BMC Youth Climbing Series offers fun climbing competitions for young people. The series is extremely popular and attracts hundreds of entrants across the country.

There are three regional rounds in each of the BMC Areas throughout Britain, Wales and Scotland, followed by a Grand Final when the top 3 in each category from each area take part.

There are five categories, with separate girls and boys competitions, that follow the IFSC (International Federation of Sport Climbing) system based on year of birth. The categories are called Youth A, B, C, D and E and are worked out on the year a young person is born.

In 2014 these are:

Youth A - those born in 1997 & 1998
Youth B – those born in 1999 & 2000
Youth C – those born in 2001 & 2002
Youth D – those born in 2003 & 2004
Youth E - those born in 2005 & 2006

Each event comprises 3 routes and 3 boulder problems for each category. In categories A, B and C routes are led. In categories D and E they are top-roped. To be eligible for the Grand Final it is necessary to take part in at least two regional rounds in the area that a climber lives. If a series is not organised in their region, climbers may enter the series in the region nearest to them.

Venue information, 2014 dates and a parents guide can be found on the BMC website

Please note that there will be no on the day entry in 2014, all entries must be completed online. Competitors who turn up on the day of the event without having entered will not be allowed to compete - without exception.

Enter online for Rounds 2 & 3
